Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



Flash is an extra special cat
He’s damn smart, knows just where it’s at
Flash aint very big but he’s tough
Stands nose ta nose when things get rough
His eyes ablaze he’ll stay and stay
Till the other cat turns away
Tip of one ear’s off – never fails
And he’s lost half of his long tail
Best about Flash, I must admit,
This tough puss is affectionate 
His purr’s so sweet, not his growl
Favorite dream – he’s on the prowl
To those who claim their cat’s the best
I’ll just say – put ‘em to the test
As said, Flash aint big, but he’s tough
Stands nose ta nose when things get rough
His eyes ablaze he’ll stay and stay
Yer poor damn cat’ll run away

    Enjoyed the take on this brave little soul Daver; I wonder 'times' at how little steadfastness is valued in this world.."

    Oie yoie, the cat we'd had at my parent's would have been a sore contender for your 'Flash', Daver. Ole MacPherson had had his ears half ripped off, but he'd never turned his tail to have it torn away.:) Still seems to be that you dearly love this toughie as much as he loves you! Keep well, Love, Mikki
