The Cat Of Cats

I am the cat of cats. I am
The everlasting cat!
Cunning, and old, and sleek as jam,
The everlasting cat!
I hunt vermin in the night-
The everlasting cat!
For I see best without the light-
The everlasting cat!

    This very-short poem is eminently quotable, and very few poems are so quotable. Also, the two points this little poem makes, (1) " I am the Cat of Cats" and " The Everlasting Cat" have never been made before (or since!) So, short as it is, this is an important Cat poem.
