Morning Cat

"I don't do mornings!"

Good Morning To You

(Dedicated to our children Bruce and Susan.)

In the wee hours of the morning when I arose lustily,
loudly off key started each day with this epic song...

"Good morning to you, we are all in bright faces and
all in our places and this is the way we start each day."

Our animals stirred, the dog or dogs, the cat, the pets,
quite a few... an escapee rat hiding behind the walls...

A goldfish floating as a dead duck, all treasures on board,
mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, white rats, yearly viewed...
