Cats 6. My Tom’s swum across the Channel!

- My Tom’s swum across the Channel!
- You’ve got a good son, Colonel!
My congratulations! He’s become
An excellent swimmer!
_____________________- What son?
- Tom! You often said Tom swam much.
He takes after you!
___________________- Tom’s such
A lazy boy. My cat Tom swims.
The Channel was crossed by him
On my head. I nearly lost
Him.
______- Then he didn’t swim but crossed.

Pool Of Blood

I was swimming.
Swimming in a pool of blood,
That wasn’t my own.

I realised it was your blood.
It was your blood and it was my fault.
I didn’t mean to.

I didn’t think.
It happened and I cant change it,
But I’m going to drown in it.

I deserve to drown in it.
Don’t I?
It was my fault and nothing will change that.

So I’ll stop swimming,
I’ll drown and everything will be right again.
Everything will be normal.

Except, neither of us will be in the world.
We’ll be in this pool of blood,
Together, forever.

So, I was swimming,
But now I’m not,
And I don’t know why?

First Step

My eyes filled with blue
My legs felt the cold
My skin feels the heat
On a blue oceans bank
I am sitting in calm

Thinking about its calm
Thinking about its water
About its tides and depth
Its currents and circulations
And also its deadly species

I am also thinking about
Its mother-of-pearl inlay
Of ores mined in its bed
About decorative shells
And many more materials

Now I am at its bank
To swim its blue water
To swim its rough tides
To swim all its currents
To swim its life for life

Life may end in gold
Life may end in blue
However it may end
Whatever may happen?
At least ends by trying

So I moved from bank
And took my first step
My first step into ocean
No idea where will I end
But had taken the first step

Ballad of Croccy & Lizzy

A tale with two tails & a love tale true

Listen my children, and you shall hear
A tale of laughter and a crocodile tear

There once was a lizard who thought she could swim
And she fell in the water for her eyesight was dim

She struggled and floundered - this story is true!
Til her cheeks filled to bursting, and her pink turned to blue

And just when poor Lizzy was to gasp her last gasp
Up swam old Croccy and took her in grasp

He laid her up gently on the shoreline so dry
And then eyed his cousin and raised up his eye

If you wanted to swim, you’d amphibious be
I come in and go out, but you stick to your tree

We’re cousins it’s true. But we differ as such
So just lie here and sun some. The water’s too much

And as Croccy swam off and lil Lizzy dried out
She regained her strength enough just to shout

Hey cousin! I thank you. I owe you my life
If you come to the forest, I’ll sure be your wife
