Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider[2]
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away

The Duck

by Ogden Nash

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

The Cat

by Ogden Nash

You get a wife, you get a house,
Eventually you get a mouse.
You get some words regarding mice,
You get a kitty in a trice.

By two a.m. or thereabouts,
The mouse is in, the cat is out.
It dawns upon you, in your cot,
The mouse is silent, the cat is not.

Instead of kitty, says your spouse,
You should have got another mouse.

The Crocodile Song

Once there was a crocodile who snapped at all he saw (CLAP!)
Snapped at all he saw (CLAP!)

Once he snapped a rock and got a toothache in his jaw
Once he snapped a rock and got a toothache in his jaw.

or
‘Til he snapped a rock and got a toothache in his jaw, jaw, jaw.
‘Til he snapped a rock and got a toothache in his jaw.

(repeat)

Song of the Wind

Listen to the wind, it’s blowing
Listen to it blow

Tra la la la, hear it blow

Tra la la la

Listen to it blow

My Cats

by Charles Bukowski

I know. I know.
they are limited, have different
needs and
concerns.

but I watch and learn from them.
I like the little they know,
which is so
much.

they complain but never
worry,
they walk with a surprising dignity.
they sleep with a direct simplicity that
humans just can’t
understand.

their eyes are more
beautiful than our eyes.
and they can sleep 20 hours
a day
without
hesitation or
remorse.

when I am feeling
low
all I have to do is
watch my cats
and my
courage
returns.

I study these
creatures.

they are my
teachers.
