oil on panel, 2010
5" x 7" (12.7cm x 17.78cm)
I painted a cat.
That looks oh so fat.
But really is just a fluffy black cat.
A cat that really is black like a bat.
A simple painting of Ricky the cat.
Attentive to something that must be a gnat.
Surely he'd get up if it were a rat.
So tell me, just what do you think of that?
Stretched out on the floor til it's time to chore.
Cats catch all the varmints till there are no more.
This is their story, from all days yore.
Or maybe it is just feline folklore.
Task is all done, catnap on the table.
This is the end of my little fable.208
