Clarence, the old ginger tom,

is quite a funny cat

preferring a blanket of stars at night

and diving into this and that.


You’ll hear him scowl at passing cars

or see him stare up at moon and stars

and although he likes to snooze at night

that doesn’t stop him having fights


When on his way – he’ll walk for miles

but locals always look and smile

as he waits at pavement – like highway code

on his way safely to another abode.


He knows all of the local shops,

and to their owners back doors he pops

He likes his fish, and likes his meat

and fish guts are a special treat.


If desperate – he’ll go and catch a mouse

and leave it someplace in the house…

But you’ll only know – and only hail

if you find that mouse’s tail


And when he’s pampered and well fed

he’ll move his striped paws off to bed.

Dreaming of fish and birds and that’s

Clarence – our dear old pussy cat.
