The Puma's Tail - or Tale?
Just a few lines from the "Puma" hoping this finds you all well,
Just lately all this attention has this Puma's nerves shot to hell,
It started one idyllic evening as I went for a stroll 'as you do',
Alas ! I was seen by a farmer, who started a hullabaloo.
Next day as I went for my breakfast 'I fancied the ear off a ewe',
Well such a crowd of police and reporters 'one could hardly believe the to-do',
As you know this was just the beginning I was harried by air and by land,
I was chased to the bridge at 'Burn Gushey' by men in a white Transit van.
To elude these intrepid intruders, I thought, I'll visit my cousin in Clare,
In my haste I forgot 'was I in for a shock' t‚was the week of the Oul Lammas Fair,
The tailback it stretched to Moyarget this spoiled my weekend by the sea,
And as I went for a rest in Clare forest some-one took a photo of me.
Now, this when it got to the news-desk it started the cat-hunt anew,
Some folk just kept 'mum' some said, "can't be done" and decided of 'me' there is two,
The experts they said, 'most unlikely' for a 'moggy' now 'that's quite a hike',
But in you I'll confide, I come from a pride, of Pumas who ride motor bikes.
Will you please spare a thought for the Puma, do not sit in judgement in haste,
Although a chewer of ears, I did not wish to be here, and for mutton I've quite lost my taste
As I write from this secret location I know I might sound a 'right prat',
But to avoid confrontation and my own ruination, I am one vegetarian cat.
