Ode to Old Mr. Whiskerson

Ode to Old Mr. Whiskerson

Skin and bones and toothless gums
And whiskers that went on for a mile
We took you home and pampered you
And in return you made us smile

You nibbled and licked when we rubbed your belly,
You kicked your leg when we scratched your ear
You chirped and purred like a rusty engine
It was clear you really liked it here

Your last days were full of love
You gained strength until the end
You locked eyes with me in your last moment
And I know someday we’ll meet again.
