“Just out there,” said the cat,

“There’s a pond full of fish.

And fish, as you know,

Is my favourite dish.”


“There is one,” she continued,

“With tail all askew…

And to catch such a fish

Should be easy to do…”


But bent-tail is wiser

By far than the moggy,

One flick of his tail

And the cat is all soggy.


The cat is now dripping,

No fish on her plate…

She seems none too happy

At all with her fate…


But someone seems happy

To see the cat fail…

“What a shame,” says the dog,

But she’s wagging her tail…
