No Cat For Dinner
Cats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner;
No one here is getting thinner.
When it comes to the evening meal,
Cats have lost their crowd appeal.
Poor cats, they do not comprehend,
Why they no longer have a friend.
Still they appear at dinner table.
Clean and polite as they are able.
No longer welcome in the family.
Swept aside and treated badly.
What have we done to rouse your ire?
We don't complain; nor do conspire.
We don't eat much.
We aren't fussy.
So share with us,
William's Whimsical Words:
Can't we just get along?
