Wild Beast Safari

By Walt Perryman

My wild beast safari this morning,
To some men, it may be a warning!

My simple job today was taking the cat to the Vet,
Iíve tried for 2 hours and have not caught her yet.

I put food in the carrier and hid behind the door,
But, after our fight, she was not around anymore.

I suffered a few scratches from that wild beast,
The last time that I saw her she was headed east!

I received the worst of the fight and that is a pity,
I am ashamed to say that I got beat up by a kitty!

I will have to tell my wife, that I didnít take her today,
No problem, she does our dangerous jobs anyway!
