  A Recipe For Kitty Cats

I had no recipe;
I knew I wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

I started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

I thought cats should be soft to pet,
Thus I gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
I taught them how to purr...

I made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology,
So they could do cat-talk.

I made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide-eyed curiosity,
I took from little boys.

I put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps.

I gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into our soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent ... and ... generous,
I made so many of them....

When one jumped up upon my lap,
I gently stroked its head;
The cat gave him a kitty kiss,
"What wonderous love," I said.
