The following was my first attemp at a Dr. Seuss version of a children's story. As you can see, it ended up a little PG13, but it's still pretty funny. Enjoy!
We all have read A Cat in a Hat,
But have you heard the one of how the Cat ate the Rat?
Yes, I know it sounds really gross,
But this is how the story goes.
The Cat was sleeping one day in bed,
when the Rat decided to poke out his head.
He poked his head out of his hole,
and on a journey he decided to go.
He crept his way throughout the house.
He walked as quietly as a mouse.
The mistress of the house spotted the Rat.
Can you imagine what happened after that?
With a broom in one hand, dustpan in the other,
She started screaming, "Oh, HOLY MOTHER!"
""Where on Earth is that useless house cat?
I need him now to come catch this rat!"
From out of his sleep, the cat was awaking.
His heart was pounding, and his body was quaking.
The Cat began to assume his role,
he chased the Rat right out the window.
They ran out the window, into the yard,
All the way to the crosswalk guard.
The crosswalk guard, she blew her whistle,
But the Cat and Rat were as slick as a thistle.
They made their way across the street.
Not a single car on their way did they meet.
They made their way to the neighbor's front yard.
The Rat, he was breathing tremendously hard.
The Cat, he was nimble, quick, and fast.
He pounced on the Rat there in the grass.
He caught the Rat between his two front paws,
And then he instinctively began to gnaw.
He quickly chewed off the poor Rat's head.
Now the nasty big Rat is dead.
This put an ending to all of the rouse.
Did this sound anything like Dr. Seuss?
