Proud: Your Daily Word Prompt

The Proud Cat

The cat in the hat 

Looked right at himself 

saw what he liked

Proud of his pic on the shelf 

He wanted the children 

To feel his way too 

He knew that he’d get it 

He’d make them brand new 

He started with babies 

And the diapers they wear 

He wanted them pretty 

On their babes’ derriere. 

He went on to toddlers 

Who toddle around 

He told them to giggle 

He just loved the sound 

He looked at the boys 

And he told everyone 

That they were so handsome 

With that he was done. 

The girls he just smiled 

For their beauty was there 

The cat told them never 

Settle for less than their share. 

The parents they loved him 

That cat in the hat 

They loved his whole message 

And encouraged him that.

Caravan: Word of the Day

The Cat in the Hat is back with families….

The cat tries to help

The cat was in line 

With most of the kids 

The parents lined up  

With their ball cap lids. 

They lined up together 

One after one 

Thinking this caravan  

Would be lots of fun 

The animals snarled 

The kids they just yelled 

The parents still marveled  

At how the moon swelled. 

When out of the box 

A boy took a jump 

He thought that he’d ride 

On a camel’s one hump 

But the cat had been there 

Running about 

And he scared that camel 

Who then scampered about 

And his hooves they did wreck 

The sides of the cage 

Everyone got scared 

Everyone of each age 

But the cat he knew better 

And raised up his hands 

“Listen to me 

And stop the horns, the yelling. the bands! 

We must get the camel  

And the zebra there too 

To be gentle creatures 

Gentle to me and to you.  

We must work together 

To calm them both down 

Before we proceed and  

We head out of town.”
