A Tale of a Tail


This is a tale of a tail

Attached to a rat

Who wanted some cheese

That belonged to a cat.


Now our cat loved to play

All day with a string

But it had been taken

By a dog who could sing.


And the cat knew the dog

Just wanted a bone

That belonged to a man

Who lived on his own.


But the man was annoyed

That his home had a mouse

Who scurried around

All over of the house.


If the mouse could be caught

Then the bone would be tendered

The string would drawn

And the cheese would be rendered.


Horrid the deeds

Would need to be done

Death and defying

Was the character of none.


So the tale of this tail

Will end on a high

In the house of the man

They all settled for pie!

    Haha!! Love this. What a perfect compromise. This is such a fun tale with an important lesson. And pie can probably solve anything! Your sketches are priceless.

      Thanks Ginger! But I cannot take credit for the sketches. They are three separate images I found on-line. I just resized them and placed them together. I was running late to draw something suitable.
