Of Goats And Boats!

The cat does not know if a goat can go high or low, but a goat can go on a boat. Do you think it will float? Don't believe a goat can be on a boat? I guess you'll need a note.

Goat on a boat.
Boat with a goat.
His boat has a goat.
That's goat's on a boat.

See where it's going?
Such a boat showing.
A boat and a goat.
Who has your vote?

Can a boat be a who?
I'm asking you.
Don't ask me.
I'm just a kitty.

I don't want a boat.
The boat can be had by a goat.
Who wants a boat?
Not anyone here of note.

Maybe a big boat.
That may get a vote.
Bet goat on a boat you can quote.
Now time for goat on a boat.











Has the goat on the boat got your vote? Is the boat in a moat? The goat has oats. Are oats liked by goats? It sure beats me. I haven't seen a goat at my sea. Anyway, now the goat on a boat has come to pass, adding another book to the pile of my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  9. Congrats on the next book!!! I have to admit that the cover made me giggle. For a children's story writing cat, a lot of your stories take place on water. I thought kitty cats hate the water!

    1. Nope, the cat likes water at his sea
      A wet cat though is kinda creepy
      But he gives a shake
      And off to whatever else he will partake

    3. Cassie cat hates it
