Of Cats and Kings

by Arthur D. Bardswell

In days of old when knights were cold
And armor was fur-lined,
Some wore this armor inside out.
(They werenít the human kind.)

In Catalot, a hero rose;
King Arfur was his name.
And to his Great Round Feeding Bowl
Came fuzzy knights of fame.

Where champions failed and lords could not,
This kitten stood alone.
And single-pawed extracted he
The Great Claw from the Bone.

To serve the great King Arfur was
The dream of evíry Tom.
For Knights of Good Saint Felix were
The Cream of Pussen-dom.

From top of roof and under house
From bed and favírite spot,
Forsaking tree and scratching post,
They came to Catalot!

His glorious vision he proclaimed:
To make all cat-fights cease;
That cats should dwell in harmony,
Their litters raised in peace.

He held his court Ė the Great Mat near
The Royal Pussy-Door;
Enthroned upon the Rocking Chair.
(The man sat on the floor.)

The call was heard in far Fur-rance
By Prancelot du Lic.
When claws were crossed and teeth were bared,
He never missed a trick.

But noblest was Sir Purr-ceval
At whose name foes would howl.
And none could turn his purpose stern:
To seek the Holy Growl.

Owned by seven, I, too, found this abundantly fun.

Hiya, David. You are right - our styles ARE very similar. You clearly have a grasp on how to blend rhyme, rhythm, and content into a wonderfully entertaining poem. Of course, I'm biased - not only do I love a good story poem, I have eight cats sprawled around here somewhere. I see you also caught the eye of Deb Porter with your work; congratulations!

Wow! What an awesome poem. As one owned by a couple cats, I enjoyed all the purr-fect language. Super fun to read.

BRAVO David! This is wonderful. I was browsing around looking for content for FaithWriters' Magazine and stumbled on this. You are such a good writer (I can't wait to get stuck into your manuscript).

David, would you allow us to use "Of Cats and Kings" in FaithWriters' Magazine? (www.faithwritersmagazine.com) This poem is such a treat of a read. If you would be willing, could you send me a quick email (via Finesse is fine) with a brief bio note to go with it? It deserves more exposure.

Love, Deb (Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine and Challenge Coordinator)
