Fishmongers ball

Fishmongers Ball.

Two cats went out to jump and shout
At the old fishmongers ball
But wouldn’t you know
They had no doe
So they gave old Ned a call.

Old Ned the dog he looked at them
With a great big happy smile
He said to them
‘I'll take you then
Gonna spend the night in style"

Old Ned was kind
So they all dined
On fish and meat so fine
The whole night long was filled with song
They had a grand old time.

Everyone danced with minds enhanced
They danced the whole night through
And in the end
The cats and friends
They said "hey what a do!".

Then when the night
Had turned to light
Old Ned he said to them
I’m off to bet
To rest my head
I’ll see you guys again.

    You mean Ned was never playful with the cats? You know the funny kind of playful that dogs love to do to cats...chasing them around and such? I surely enjoyed reading this amazing poem this evening! You have delighted me to no end by the powers of this free-flowing piece! Great Work!!
