Friday’s Children


It’s Friday

I should say something

About cats

And to be fair


And if you have a rabbit

Pet your rabbit

Be careful ‘round the ears

Otherwise, I think they like it


Friday’s child is loving and giving

Cats, it’s true

Are a source of affection

And encouragement

Through seeming indifference

Dogs are obvious about it,

Aren’t they?

Sometimes that’s just what we need

Obvious affection

I’ve spent most of my life

Around both

Not both kinds of cats (though

that’s true)

But contrary cats

And thorough dogs
