Scaredy Cat

An orange tabby I knew

a dapper gentlecat

He liked to spend his time

a-listening to Jazz

Jazz Cat Jay they called him

and he also played the sax

and thus he was the favourite

of all the lady cats.

Louis Jordan, Jimmy Dorsey

Eddie Vinson, Arnett Cobb

And how about  Ben Webster?

Jay’s always on the job

However this story, I’m afraid is sad

because this handsome fella

– my friend it’ll give you pause,

For all his many talents, a scaredy cat he was.



UPDATE: Because some people were wondering, both the poem and the drawing are mine :)
