The hat in the cat, that swallowed it whole
Then jumped in my arms, and he started to grow....
A cain for his paw and taps for his shoes
He then leaned over and whispered
"But have you heard the news?"
I opened my eyes and I lifted my head
Yet the cat was not there; it was a dream, I said
Still what was this news as I climbed out of bed
And opened the blinds, but the trees were all dead....
I looked to my left, then I looked to my right
Not a sound could be heard; I could find no life!?
Jumped in the shower and brushed my teeth
Put on my suit, and then, there appeared a wreath....
But what does it mean, I thought, and what was this dream?
As I stepped out my door, unto a desolate scene ~
I got in my car and I started to drive
Thought to myself, am I the only Soul that's alive?
I drove and drove until the day turned to night
Never passing nor seeing not even one life....
I began to weep as I lowered my eyes, slowly down
Tears upon my cheeks, which fell silent to the ground
Yet then, I heard a voice which spoke softly in my ear....
So I lifted my and I swallowed my tears ~
Tears within my vision that made it ever so clear
Like the cat within my dream, that whispered
"Oh, but the time is so near"....
....“The Cat, That Swallowed The Hat?!”
