A Cat Named Frank


He is a beautiful kitty cat
Frank is his name
And around the barnyard
He has risen to fame

Not only does he have
A coat so warm and soft
He’s quite the little mouser
Even up in the tall hay loft

He has a certain way
About him, it’s a fact
His personality, my friend
Changes how you react

You fall in love so quickly
When Frank comes into the room
For he takes a lot of time
Out of his busy day to groom

He keeps your heart on a string
And this you can take to the bank
When you become a victim of
A charming cat named Frank!

    It's very easy to see with Frank that he takes his responsibilities very seriously and is very proud in what he is able to bring to the table. Good write, well enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    Hi Marilyn,

    Lovely piece - cats come with inbuilt arrogance but you just have to love them for it.

    Read a few of your others as well - lovely fun reads and well structured. Really enjoyed the Ducks & Buffalo too!

    Regards
