EVERY DAY’S A DOG’S DAY

(excerpt)

CAT-CHASING DAY

It can happen anytime,

   it can happen anyplace.

It’s a cause for celebration

     when a feline shows its face.

 

For a lark you’ll charge and bark

     just to get on kitty’s case.

With a dissed hiss it’ll bristle,

     take a leap, and start to race.

 

Though you’re fast, you’ll come in last,

     ’cause that cat will set the pace.

Still, you’ve won because the fun

     is not the finish–IT’S THE CHASE!
