A Kitty Named Cletus
Cletus alone did live
from the litter mama cat did give;
he likes to play on the rail
and chase his mom’s tail;
truly, he is quite active.
But shy is our kitty named Cletus -
he won’t even come out to greet us!
He stays close to his mom;
dogs and thunder he runs from,
and his trust for people never increases.
Birds alone Cletus braves to near,
he leaps on them without fear,
and oh yes, the fish no doubt
that we dutifully ladle out,
and the milk that he guzzles like beer.
