Cats in the Toilet Paper


What’s that scurrying about?

It’s the sound of tiny paws

The cats are along the hallway

What’s that between their claws?


Oh no!  It’s the toilet paper

That they’re dragging behind

Along the wooden hallway

And over the kitchen blind


There’s toilet paper everywhere

They’ve left nothing bare

The cats have left a trail

While travelling without a care


Now someone is shouting.

Oh no! It’s my Dad

He’s covered in toilet paper

And does look rather mad


Something’s moving toward me

Skidding on the floor

It’s Hans, our cute puppy

With paper around a paw


The cats have been everywhere

Around light shades and plants

Toilet paper’s hanging in cupboards

Around our clothes and underpants


The cats have gone outside

Paper is wrapped around a pole

There seems a lot of paper

Oh no!  They’ve got another roll.
