My Big Fat Cat

©

Published: May 2017

I own a big fat cat-
The fattest for miles around.
Wherever there's lots of food,
That's where he'll be found.

He's really good at eating.
It's a talent, I suppose.
I'm sure if he keeps at it
He'd win the talent shows.

I own a big fat cat-
He weighs at least a ton.
He couldn't run to save his life.
Yes, he isn't much fun.

His favourite room's the kitchen.
(I'm sure we all know why.)
He eats just about everything,
So that's why, with a sigh...

I'd like to tell you, Teacher,
I'd like to tell you straight,
I might have "accidentally" dropped
My homework in his plate.

As a cat lover, I definitely enjoyed this poem. You were very clever to do a new take on the old theme of "My dog ate my homework." And then the surprise ending about it landing on her plate was terrific. I enjoy reading (and writing) humorous poems. This put a smile on my face. Good work.
