Something Afoot

asks us to write a midget story using her illustration


Here is a very young cook
Who is writing a cookery book.
It is called Use Your Feet
So out in the street
He's flattening pastry! Just look!
(140 characters)

(A poem for children.)

There once was a cat, and a very fine cat,
Who went out on a spending spree.
He bought nothing but the best,
A hat, a vest,
And boots reaching to the knee.
He bought a tie, a very fine tie,
And he said 'Well, all together
I positively shine
In these clothes of mine
But the best thing is my feather'.
For sure the feather was a very fine feather
And he wore it in his hat.
And he posed and bowed
Feeling very, very proud
Thinking he was the smartest cat.
He put on a show, a very fine show,
As off to the palace he went.
'I'll show the lot
What good taste I've got!
And how much money I've spent!'
But the guard at the gate (a very fine gate)
Just wasn't impressed a bit.
'The gate's not wide
From side to side
With that feather, you won't fit!'
So that poor silly cat, that very silly cat,
Had to throw his feather away!
And in a mood
Which was very subdued
He learned a lesson that day!

Both of these are very cute but I loved the silly cat one the best. See what happens when you try to show off?! :)
