A little chap and the cat-flap

by Jem Croucher

It’s really quite an awkward thing
when just a little chap
and I’ve never understood the art
of pushing the cat-flap

Basil (the much older dog)
does it all the time
But I get stuck and have to wait
sometimes with a whine

And yes, I have a longer nose
but it’s sensitive you know
so I’m cautious where I poke it
whilst down here quite so low

For I’m only just a little chap
and always on my guard
I’m good at licks and barking
but some things are too hard

So when (like the door) it’s open
the cat-flap I’ll jump through
But pushing with my precious nose?
A thing I’ll never do!
