Odd: FOWC with Fandango

The Cat Sneaks In…

When the cat finally came  
 
He noticed something was wrong  
 
No one was talking  
 
No one singing a song  
 
The house was so quiet  
 
It sounded empty and bare  
 
The sound was so odd  
 
The cat tried not to stare  
 
When he got in the house  
 
The kids were sleeping in bed  
 
Both tucked in tight  
 
Upon the pillow, their head.  
 
The cat couldn’t stand  
 
The quiet all through the house  
 
He started to scream  
 
He even woke up the mouse  
 
The children woke up  
 
And were scared half to death  
 
The cat sat there waiting  
 
The cat holding his breath  
 
They started to cry  
 
And the cat he felt bad  
 
All he wanted to do  
 
Was have fun like they’d had.  
 
He looked at the kids  
 
And smiled best as he could  
 
The kids would be happy  
 
Well, he thought that they should  
 
He started to stare  
 
And wonder how they’d react  
 
They started to smile  
 
They started laughing in fact  
 
The cat was so happy  
 
He jumped up and down  
 
The kids they just chuckled  
 
He acted just like a clown.  
 
When all of a sudden  
 
The hall light went on  
 
Mom and dad they were coming  
 
The fun was all done.  
 
The cat would be back  
 
If not later, then soon  
 
And he snuck out the window  
 
Using light from the moon.

As most of my followers can tell by  now, I love Dr. Seuss! This is another piece of my fan-fiction poetry.

  1. Very whimsical! And I have a soft spot for Theodor Seuss Geisel – the local school district was building a new school and I suggested they name it Theo. S. Geisel Elementary and the mascot would be the Cats. Everyone liked it (another elementary is Walt Disney). But the Dr. Seuss trust wouldn’t give permission… they went with meadow’s edge (a dumb name). Their sports teams are the hawks but everyone calls them the meadow muffins!
