Game Of Cat And Mouse

Oh my goodness! Did you see that???
A mousie riding on the back of a cat

Guess these guys have kissed and made up
Heard mousey yell “Hey! Giddy-up!”

Great to see them getting on so well
Mousey's relieved, as you can tell

Wearing a big grin from ear to ear
Felix is enjoying it too, it appears

Remember this lesson from one time rivals
Don't need no conflicts for survival

It's a whole lot better to laugh and have fun
Than face extinction at the point of a gun

So what did you learn from this sweet wee tale?
Enjoy yourself and drink lots of ale

You'll see little mousies and cats at play
Instead of killings on TV each day!

    Loved it! LOL... My Dad and I play cat and mouse... He just doesn't realize I'm at the controls on top. Giddy up! Candid Camera was a great show...Do you remember 'The Life of Riley'. I thought of it yesterday, while talking about 'The Andy Griffith Show' and Ron Howards career with Papa.
