Christine’s Daily Writing Prompt: The Cat in the Hat


A Face in the Wrong Place. 

A face is quite nice on a cat

On a cat, a face is never off place,

And a face looks OK on a rat,

So, We can all agree on that.

But a face looks decidedly crazy

When it’s sitting on top of a daisy,

On a daisy, a face just isn’t right,

In fact, it’s a terrible sight.

On anything leafy and green,

A face should never be seen,

Either on a daisy or some lovely calabrese.

This is all science gone wrong,

What next a potato in a sarong?

So, when I see a face on a daisy,

Or indeed some lovely calabrese,

I just think its genetics gone crazy.
