Treasure Island

Elia Michael


My Cat


My cat once had between his teeth
A little thing – namely a toad
He had found in the nearby heath
Which he brought back to his abode

With care he placed it on the floor
Not wanting to harm it at all
He watched it hop about with awe
And was it seems having a ball

When the toad failed to entertain
He would extend his paw and pat
It gently again and again
And it would entertain my cat

After a short while I decided
It was cruel for the little toad
With the cat suitably chided
I took the toad to its abode

    lol for a second I thought this would be a gruesome tale about the death of an innocent frog, carried out by a murderous cat. I'm so glad it's not, and that it turned out cute lol. *Adorably written*

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
