Breakfast For two

"Breakfast for two"

Callie the cat 
climbed the cypress
curious for something to eat.

Benny the bird 
perched on a branch
just a claw out of Callies reach.

Benny the bird 
spied a round worm
snaking along the ground.

Few a-ground 
went Benny the bird
and chowed the yummy thing down.

Now Benny the bird
sat licking his beak
enjoying his morning treat,

while Callie the cat
planned the attack
for too her morning treat;

Well Benny the bird
no longer around,
to see mornings a-new
For the squiggly round worm
that became a treat
was also breakfast for two...
