Oskie is barking


Oskie is barking


In Lanzarote the Oscar won by Rhi

Came from the barking female cat-egory

Doggedly exuberant Oskie was in place

In the wardrobe or top of the bookcase


Hot foot this cat was no mere boaster

Standing above bagels popped from the toaster

By the boiling kettle and over the hob

Health and safety was just not her job


In the bathroom beware of using the sink

Or urination if Oskie wants a drink

She won’t give up, has determination

Her face in your glass causes consternation


Any wire or cord maybe a snake to be killed

With my shoelaces was completely thrilled

Everything a toy caused Oskie a play backlog

This was this was the reign of the cats but not dogs


Oskie has 9 lives the big ball of fluff

Tickle her belly and find if she is tough

She will lay on her blanket if put on your lap

As she dreams of water that runs from the tap



This is my daughters cat Oskie. We met recently when I visitedmy daughter in Lanzarote

I like the narrative within the poem. Your word choice evoked good imagery. It is a lovely “good feel” poem.
