Smokie – Mighty Hunter or Marshmallow Cloud

I’m Smokie; I’m a hunter!

You will not see my like.

I follow my prey to the ends of the Earth;

Unless its a bit of a hike.


My best move is to stay very still,

And ambush things that pass.

But I get bored quite quickly,

If things don’t happen fast.

My sister caught a mouse last week.

She trapped it in a shoe.

The humans took it outside then.

What did you think they’d do?


I need a mousie of my own!

To prove that I’m still king!

To stop the girl cats laughing,

and calling ‘Lazy Thing!’

I found a hole in the dog food bag,

Behind an oft closed door;

So I know the mousies’ been here!

Perhaps they’ll come once more!

Yesterday I caught a mousie,

And proved I was the best!

From inside my mouth he ran away!

Why?  I can not guess!


But I caught him!  That’s the point I say!

But Pixie disagrees!

‘Unless the humans get the mouse,

I still get to tease!’


‘So you must catch the mouse and hold him,

Till they take the mouse away.’

I know he’s coming back again!

I’ll just wait here all day!

  1. your poem is the cutest thing that i have read today
    (depending on the time zone) for what alex had to say*
    within 4 minutes i was here, i tell you luck it was
    to read about your four-legged and lazy ball of fuzz!

    (i think its been 24 hours, though with the time difference its tricky to say for sure.)
