Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Berlin Maryland Summer 2007


There's a Cat up a pole

Who can’t get down and

He might just fall upon

The ground

The fire brigade are preoccupied

Painting the floor of their fire station

And the Berlin Police are similarly indisposed

So we blackmailed the mayor

Who, also, did not care

About cat welfare

Until we mentioned the ......


It was a pussy on a pole nightmare

And there were tears and alarm

When the big man came

With a big truck and a big beer belly.

Said if the cat fought back he’d “chuck it”

And when he said “cats, I do NOT love”

We told the tattooed oaf to put on

A pussy glove.

And just how did you get the cat rescue job

You don’t seem qualified.

The cat hating cat rescue goes amiss and

Kitty leaps 40 feet to avoid the fat bellied cat grabber

Cat leap misses the tree limb and tumbles 45 feet

Onto the ground

A belly first thud and scatters into the bushes

One life down and women weeping

And the adrenaline rush into the rough

We said wow and in due course the cat


And in time, reappeared seemingly unharmed

A patient Mary longed to adopt

Our new feral redhead friend

With a taste for cat “gourmet”

But a broken spell and broken hearts when

Fickle kitten follows

Another caravan of family picnickers

Who disembark

Hampered with fresh titbit potential

Fair weather friend follows the hunger trail

And we are soon forgotten.

Mary said that she would return

To make sure that he or she is OK

But the Kitten does not seem to know we care

And Uncle Buck said he will return

To make sure Mary is OK

But Mary does not seem to know we care.
