The Cat Limerick--By Shirley Smothers--United States

The Cat Limerick

The cat stood before the pearly gate
Saint Peter said, "Hurry don't be late."
Angry began to shout
"Either come in our stay out!"
This is why nine lives is a cat's fate

Shirley Smothers is a poet. A few of her poems have appeared in Lone Stars Magazine, The Poets Art, and The Poetry Explosion Newsletter.

  2. This a grandiose poem, so much fun. I always wondered how cats got all nine lives.
