And So It Begins
And so it begins. This is shocking
and SERIOUS. Please don’t be mocking
my tale of a lady
lewd men heard was shady.
Soon, off to her house they’d go flocking.
A jokester deceived them by telling,
“I know of a woman who’s selling
just what you’ve been craving.”
He soon had them raving,
“Man, where’s this delectable dwelling?!”
Then, ready to blow all their money,
they rushed off to buy—uh . . . some honey,
but what was awaiting
they’d surely be hating,
the wrong kind of cathouse--NOT funny!
A crazy old woman with twenty-
nine cats peered at them through her glinty,
shrewd eyes and said, “I know
you’re here to buy cats, so
just take your picks, gents. I’ve got plenty!”
