Whether on the night before Christmas, or
Midsummer's Eve, in the house are stirring
The feet of one mouse, or maybe a score!
This keeps Domino hunting, or purring
During the day, dreaming of mice he'll catch.
He's a tuxedo cat, both black and white,
With each of his eyes wearing a white patch,
His sides and back black, camouflaged at night.
His mistress is kind, why, even to mice!
Good thing that she's also so kind to cats,
Since, deeming a mousetrap a mean device,
She might find herself overthrown by rats!
Then one night this happened, right at the stroke
Of midnight. Domino quite plainly spoke!
"Black and white, please! I'll not dress like some cat-
Hobo in an alley. My tuxedo
Always is proper, with a black top-hat
Fitting my higher station, don't you know?
Let him have tuna. I take caviar.
Down there? I beg your pardon, but I shall
Be seated at the table as you are!
Now upon it I hardly mind at all.
Why, no dirty dog am I, but feline!
I'll have you know, in one past life I was
Seated beside a Goddess, half divine,
So watch yourself. I have the tiger's claws!
What makes you think you're dreaming? I talk too.
I recite SONNETS! That beats most of you."
