How much fancier can a gentleman get
than a captive bird in a cage that’s ornate?
Or a nicely groomed dog on the end of a lead,
not a cross or a mix, but a pedigree breed,
with a kennel to sleep in to keep nice and warm,
treats in a pocket and tricks to perform.
A cat won’t follow orders, it walks all alone,
and turns up its nose at a big juicy bone.
Cats fancy themselves as they’re grooming their fur
with a nibble, a lick and a satisfied purr.
The local bird fancier had better beware
that the catch on his cage is fastened with care;
and dog walkers make sure to always hold tight
because dogs will chase cats, and they both love a fight.
