The Saga Of Mary Bale - Poem by Mark Sellen

Mary Bale went for a walk one day,
Saw a cat and the cat went, 'Hey! '
'Hi', said Mary and gave it a stroke,
And then threw it in a wheelie bin, just for a joke!

'Bye little cat', Mary said,
And on her heels she turned and fled.
Not a hint of emotion on her face,
As the cat sat in it's confined space.

The street was quiet and the day was hot,
The cat exclaimed, 'I like this, NOT! '
No food, No water, alone in the dark,
All this grief And just for a lark!

Many hours later, the Mann's jumped to their feet,
Opened a window to stifle the heat,
Hearing her master the cat cried, 'Hey! '
And this was the end of her awful day!

All were delighted the cat was saved,
Though seen on U-Tube, the people raved,
The Moggy Mauler, she must be sick,
'Find her, Find her....Find her quick..
Mary Bale went for a walk one day,
A hundred journalists went her way!
