The ocelot

The ocelot that pines a lot
Wants a pair of dentures
Give up the thought dear ocelot
Get on with your adventures


Note: Ocelots have no teeth for chewing 
so they must tear their food to shreds with their sharp claws and eat it whole.

    Thank you. These cats couldn't survive without them.

    Wow, this is a cat we don't hear much about. HOWEVER, you can write about the dangest animals. I looked these up, seems like none had dentures though. I'd be too chicken to check one out. Another fun write, Jon! Mikki

    Fine poem Jon. I learned something today that I did not know. They tell me that Ocelots can be very savage, and courageous, But I don't know much about them... this poem made me smile....Peter

    ha! i'll bet you first thought of dentures and adventures and then planned the poem around that. however you came up with it though, i'm so glad you did! (by the way, thanks for the info - i had no idea that ocelots have no teeth!)
