Maf And Thomas - Poem by Francis Duggan
Though the relationship between them will never be great
Maf the female chow chow and Thomas the cat getting on better of late
And though the miaowing of a cat on her nerves does grate
Karen and Peta's favourite moggy she has learned to tolerate.
Of Chinese canine ancestral royalty Maf to none does kow tow
A thoroughbred dog is the blue tongued chow chow
The purest of pure breeds in old Koroit Town
To be different to all bar her own kind her claim to renown.
On her loyalty Karen and Peta can always depend
But Thomas the cat will never be her friend
She no longer hates him as she did before
She just tolerates him that and nothing more.
Mistrustful of strangers to her breed she is true
But loyal to her friend that's to give her fair due
Though Thomas the cat not in her trusted few
One might say to that tell us something that's new.
