The Cat and The Fly

Death to the fly
Said the cat for I spy
A fly swirling and twirling around
With a buzz and a fizz
Whilst doing his biz
An irritant or so I have found

For he carries his germs
In the places he swirms
And swaggers all over the place
With a means so it seems
To fill nightmares not dreams
And does so in front of my face

So death to the fly
I will jump up so high
And catch him while he’s unaware
And eat him in one
In a flash – he’ll be gone
In mid flight whilst he’s up in the air

For I am the cat
And with a split and a splat
His pesty mission I swear I’ll deter
For as a whizz to catch prey
I will not delay
And then I’ll sleep happy and purr!

But the fly was quite bright
And decided to fight
With the cat who he fathomed was thick
I am the fly
He said, And I will deny
This cat her one wish with this trick

For though she is fast
And thinks she can blast
Me out of the sky in a jif!
She hasn’t quite reckoned
That in a tick I can beckon
A plague when I get in a tiff!

For mess with me cat
It’ll be you that goes splat
By the fact I can get on your nerves
And so swish and so swash
It will be your own loss
Just try catch me as I dive and I swerve

So a standoff occurred
And without any word
These creatures determined to win
With the fly up on high
Buzzing round in the sky
Whilst the cat prepped herself to begin

They marked up their lines
To clearly define
The boundary o’re which they would fight
Then cat said to the fly
Look me straight in the eye
And muster all strength and all might

For fly dearest fly
I cannot deny
You drive me quite crazy you do
With your fuzz and your fizz
And your weaving and whizz
And continual hullabaloo

And with that the cat pounced
In a snap she did bounce
And gobbled the fly in one go
For it appears and is clear
That the cat had the sheer
Will to honour her words in one blow

And as for the fly
Who thought he could try
To outsmart the cat it was shown
That no matter how bright
The fact’s simply quite
This feline queen was in a class of her own!

Wonder

I wonder as I wander
What wonders I will see
A wandering in wonderment
Midst wonderful country
A wonderwork to wonder on
Whilst wandering about
For a wonder, it’s a wonderland
Without a shade of doubt!

Aging

So I appear to be getting older
With more greys than blond for sure
With creaky joints and eyes that aren’t
So focussed anymore

And I see my midline growing
That – I don’t like, I confess
Whilst my heart’s a flipping nuisance
With AWOL beats from stress!

It also takes a little longer
To get from a to b
To mow the lawn or walk the dog
Or even make the tea!

Yet the culprit for these issues
Appears not to care a jot
Just sits there by his armchair
Almost rooted to the spot!

He never lifts a finger
Nor offers to assist
Moreso waves his arms in circles
To ensure no second’s missed

And to drive the point home further
He calls out to ensure
That hourly I’m reminded of
Time knocking on my door!

For whilst I am but human
And aging is my destiny
His face simply never changes
And he stays all wrinkle free!

His frame remains in-tact
Age makes no odds to him
He never gains an ounce of fat
And really stays quite slim

And so long as he’s wound daily
His ticker tick tick tocks
For you see the bane of all my aging woes
I blame on Grandfather Clock!
