TITLE: Stone Walled!

I love nonsense! Especially about animals.
Have you ever seen a family cat
In Winter‘s thick and fluffy coat
Sitting upright on the table
Glaring at too friendly dog,
Preening its superior
Arrogant behaviour, a
Disdainful, dispossessed and so
Desultory sort of mog?

Watch it narrowing its eye,
And slightly twitch that stripey tail,
Settle for displacement
With ill humoured sort of grace,
Then mother sights the feline
On the prohibition platform,
And brandishes her duster
In that aristocratic face!

His affronted lordship leaps
And then pursued by foe eternal
Leaps again to thunder downward
On the ivory-ebony scale.
But musicianship is lacking
As a duet is engaged in
With the ringletted pianist
Of the future on his tail..

With mantelpiece right out of reach
Our moggy, in a frenzy, with
His cunning tailgater,
Scrambles round the lounge arena
In a dozen crazy circles
‘Til the watching flowered curtain
Offers one last opportunity
To ascend the literary scene.

So finally, temporarily,
Accord negotiated,
Subject to distance vertical
The friendliness is stalled.
His Haughtiness feigns dignity
As canine love refocusses
On tuna in the pussy’s dish
While Puss remains stone-walled.
