It's a Bird! It's a Plane
by Iggy Cat
Yoo Hoo! Look at me I'm way up high.
Prancer insists I go for a ride.
A ride? On a deer? I just don't know.
He snorts, "Just grab the fur of my hide."
Can't get far if we're stuck on this wall!
"Boy, haven't your heard I have magic?"
That's impossible you have no legs!
"That surely indeed does sound tragic."
"Don't judge a book just by it's cover,
nor by the velvet on these antlers.
Boy, just close your eyes then count to ten,
then hold on for some fun adventures."
He said count to ten. "One, two, three, four."
My eyes opened to a big surprise!
Lo and behold we were flying high.
So high I couldn't believe my eyes.
Above the clouds so fluffy and pale,
Stood stars that flickered ever so bright.
I could almost see Heaven from here!
Who would believe I'm a cat in flight?
Prancer dashed from this house to that one,
leaving hoof prints on snow ladden roofs.
Sprinkles of dust laid thick in the air.
This should make for some comedy spoofs.
What is that? "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!"
"Oh my Lord! Look! It's a cat with horns!"
Headline of the local newspaper?
"It was Jesus in a crown of thorns!"
What would that fetch on Ebay?
