Pretty Kitty

By Elvira

Prissy, prissy,
little kitty
going to town
to church
or, what?
Matters Not —
“I like to dress
in hats and gloves —
being fashion forward
is what’s hot.”

Dressing in a Gucci bag
is nice.
Better than eating
Duck á la mice.
Being a five star cat is better
than pâté on shoe leather.
So, here I go to fashion weeks
galore —
Smelling salmon from next door.
Good bye Vogue. Good bye Elle.
You know, Breeding always tells,
Don’t heed the rags, I’ll take yours,
and sleep happy in a
Barn!
