(One from a while back on YWP)
The businessman walked by the cat in the tree
It looked to be soft and cute
The poor thing meowed pitifully
But he didn’t want to ruin his suit.
The firemen passed the cat in the tree
The fire truck seemed to sail
Towards a fire, not the kitty
So it joined in the siren’s wail.
Then a mother of five saw the cat in the tree
The kids took their chance to run
So she had to take off quickly
To ruin their mischievous fun.
Next a teenager passed the cat in the tree
And earplugs were stuffed in her ear
With the volume turned up so loudly
The mewing she could not hear.
Old Harold shuffled past the cat in the tree
And although he was very kind
It was hard to hear and harder to see
So to the cat his eyes were blind.
A baby with dad saw the cat in the tree
But being unable to talk
He could only gaze wonderingly
And past the tree they did walk.
Sad and trembling was the cat in the tree
It had lost all of its hope
Until two kids skipped happily
Up the trail’s long slope.
The boy and the girl heard the cat in the tree
Before it was actually seen
They carried the cat out cautiously
And placed it on grass that was green.
Even though a person can seem quite small
Or is only the age of three
That person can really become quite tall
If they save the cat in the tree.
