Poetry Friday: How a Cat Was Annoyed and a Poet Was Booted by by Guy Wetmore Carryl

A poet had a cat.
There is nothing odd in that -
    (I might make a little pun about the Mews!)

But what is really more
Remarkable, she wore
    A pair of pointed patent-leather shoes.

      And I doubt me greatly whether
        E'er you heard the like of that:
      Pointed shoes of patent-leather
        On a cat!
