*The Cat in the Hat fan-fiction poetry*
With a dubious look of suspicion
And a growing pain deep in his gut
The Cat saw the pothole ahead there
he would never get out of that rut.
His car sort of bumped off the corner
The fender got only a scratch
He’d hate to tell the kids about it
He thought of a lie he could hatch.
He’d tell them he was a soldier
That he’d been called out to fight in a war
The bullets flew fast all around him
He didn’t get out of his car
He’d tell them that animals gathered
‘Round his car just to take in the sight
That lions jumped up on the tailgate
That they all gave him quite a great fright.
He’d tell them he went to a shindig
To dance until he had to drop
His stomach was full of the goodies
There was ice cream with cherries on top.
He’d tell them he fell off a mountain
But luckily landed intact
He’d pulled out the airbag so quickly
before he crashed he needed to act.
Just then the Cat had a vision
Of telling the kids the whole truth
That he had been picking up takeout
When he slid his car by the booth.
He would say that he slid it in sideways
To wait quietly for his fast food
His patience was quickly degrading
He was trying to keep his good mood.
But when the kids ran outside to see him
They didn’t notice anything wrong
So he got out fast to get playing
While the radio played a nice song.
