Along Came a Cat

by Default avatar C.M. 1 minute

I was sitting on a park bench,

And along came a cat.

The sight of it made my heart wrench,

It was blacker than a bat.

I was sitting in a cafe,

And along came a man.

The sight of him made me feel safe,

I offered him my hand.

I was sitting on a hospital bed,

And along came a baby.

The sight of her made me feel dread,

Was he the father? Maybe.

I was sitting on my office chair,

And along came my boss.

The sight of him made me feel despair,

He said, "I'm sorry for your loss."

I was sitting on a church pew,

And along came the caskets.

The sight of them made me feel blue,

I tried my best to mask it.

I was sitting in my car, turning 'round a corner,

And along came that blackest of cats

I sped up and ran it over.

I was sitting on the sidewalk,

And along came no one.

Staring at the mangled carcass,

I wept for my loved ones.
