Oh, my Tubby Wubbins! Beautiful cat! How did I get so lucky in this world That it's my humble home in which you' re curled, Silvery tabby tom, so fine and fat. Your pale green eyes are rimmed with kohl, or so It seems. Your face is tigerish and square. A mink, or a movie star, would love to wear A coat like yours. You've blessed my life, you know.
Speers, E, Sonnet 35, Kunapipi, 12(3), 1990.
