The Abernathy Cat

 It's the Easter Holidays, the kids are at home... so here's a poem for the young ones to enjoy.

My name is simply Jacobite, 
I'm the Abernathy Cat.
My coat is sleek and slender,
of ginger fur and spats.

 With all the lovely weather we've been having down here of late, it's no wonder thoughts have skiped through spring and straight on to summer.

Breaking the news in poetic verse.

Just a little bit of fun for a sunny afternoon....How was it for you?

Hi darling...I'm home
could you lend me a hand?
I appear to have purchased
much more than I planned.

Did you bag any bargains,
were the BOGOF's half price,
did you buy any goodies,
did you remember the rice?

Of course I remembered,
do you think that I'm thick?
NO...don't look in that bag,
they're my personal bits.

Okay, keep your hair on,
there's no need to shout,
but I don't understand
what the fuss is about.

Can you lock up the car please?
Quick, here's the key.
I'd do it myself
but I'm desperate to pee!


Jeeze, when you're tetchy
you sting like a wasp.
I can't understand it;
I'm completely nonplussed

I'll show you the reason
I was touchy before,
I've pee'd on this stick
and this is the score.

Well...I guess it's official;
not sure what else to say.
I guess that it means
we'll be parents one day.

So honestly sweetheart
is that all that I get?
Just a couple of 'Wells'
and an 'Oh bloomin' heck.'

Oh come over here,
now don't be dramatic,
I'm just wondering if
there is space in the attic.

Of course I'm excited,

my heart's jumping for joy.
Do you think you can tell
if it's a girl or a boy?
