I have written this poem inspired by this picture in response to the What do you See? Challenge, see link below:
I have also included the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge from the Go Dog Go Cafe,
see link here:
The challenge is to write a poem (or story) with the phrase “Free Me” in it.
So here we go:
As they gathered by the light of the moon,
The Pussycat sang a line from an old Broadway Tune,
Serenading the Tomcat who stood tall on the tiles
From the rooftop, it seemed they could both see for miles.
Then into the night, they heard a loud miaow
Followed by shouting “Please Free Me Right Now”
And dangling beneath them from the gutter
A marmalade alley cat flailed like a nutter.
He shouted again “Oi, don’t act like a dope”
“The least you could do is to throw me a rope”.
It’s not hard to see how these antics inspired
Andrew Lloyd Webber, and how ‘Cats’ transpired.
