The Cat

You lie on your back
Stretch yourself thin
You turn back your head
I tickle your chin

You lie on the bed
Pretending to sleep
Curled up tight
A soft little heap

I open a tin
You rush to my side
The toffees and chocolates
I just can’t hide

You brush up against me
Or play with my lace
Nuzzle your nose
Into my face

For you are a tiger
Or so you might think
You’re really a puss cat
Curled up in the sink

Ah thankyou.
