Christmas Poetry

Cat In The Manger

U.A. Fanthorpe

In the story, I'm not there.
Ox and ass, arranged at prayer
But me? Nowhere.
Anti-cat evangelists
How on earth could you have missed
Such an obvious and able
Occupant of any stable?

Who excluded mouse and rat?
The harmless necessary cat.
Who snuggled in with the holy pair?
Me. And my purr.

Matthew, Mark and Luke and John,
(Who got it wrong, Who left out the cat)
Remember that,
Wherever He went in this great affair 
was there.
