The Tabby’s Delicate Tummy


When Mungo the cat makes that sound
My weekend head snaps around
I shout ‘Nooo!’ like Nicolas Cage
And dive headlong with a magazine page
Alas, the beast is far too fast
He heaves it up with one great gasp
It glistens on a carpet two weeks new
Leaves of plants and kibble stew
A stinking lumpy golden mound
Always announced by that same sound
When the cat cries ‘Meow! Bletch!’
I know the bastard’s going to retch
Yes, when he crouches and howls that ‘Mew!’
Jesus Christ! He’s going to spew
