A Tale of Bali

have you ever seen a Balinese cat

it was at Poppies at Kuta

when first we did meet

I went there to eat

and right at my feet

sat this . . .

pardon me . . .

scruffy old cat

I questioned the waiter politely

what have the fates been

to minus poor pussy a tail

he laughed and explained thus

a cat in Bali brings good luck

and so he won’t roam

the loss of his tail is

considered a must

for respect they are given

and their presence much sought

some say this tale is not true

that the pussycat’s loss is due

to parents . . .

who look just the same
