CAT STORY: RACHAEL AND THE TURKEYS
You remember that Rachael is our newest cat?
She is very small and classier than the Cat in the Hat.
Every early morning she rushes to her favorite place
to see her favorite wild turkeys almost face to face.
Almost all year three tom turkeys stroll past
and look for food by our front deck.
Lately the hens hang out, they make their visit last
and watch the tom with the scrawny neck.
The hens could about Tom care less
Even as he puts on his courting show.
His tail feathers fan out for who he admires, Bess,
He really hopes she won’t say no.
Today Tom again came calling
but lo, his confidence is falling.
The hens had already come and gone,
They weren’t interested in his feathery brawn.
Rachael waits for the hens to come back,
she seems to be on their side.
She’s concerned about the hens and their lack
and wants her Mama to bring them inside.
