Rusty’s New Year’s Celebration

 Written by T. L. O’Neal

 

New Year’s eve was coming fast,

there wasn’t much time to prepare.

So many things that needed doing,

he better get ready and fix his hair.

 

He decided to go to Times Square,

to celebrate with all the folk.

It was starting to get cold outside,

so he put on his winter cloak.

 

Then Rusty the cat wondered,

what would he do for the New Year.

When the ball dropped he looked,

and out of his eye came a tear.

 

He toasted the New Year,

as he sang “Auld Lang Syne.”

Then he lifted up his glass,

and drank his catnip wine.

 

To the mice that he would miss,

he shouldn’t have eaten them all.

Now all he has to play with is,

his old red fuzzy ball.

 

Rusty the cat was looking forward,

to New Year’s Day he thought.

With all the good things to eat,

that his mama and daddy bought.

 

With pork roast, black-eyed peas,

greens and fried cornbread too.

This made him so excited,

that he let out a happy mew.

 

He wants to watch some football,

and the Rose Parade is the best.

Then it’s time for a big catnap,

to get some sleep and rest.

 

Then when the day is all over,

he’ll think back on it and smile.

Only another year he thought,

that’s not even a country mile.

Then when the day is all over
He'll think back on it and smile
Only another year he thought
That's not even a country mile ... Priceless!

... "And drank his catnip wine," that's about the most poetic and creative thing I've read lately. I love it because it made me smile. One thing is for sure, our pets mean the world to us and then some. If I ever get to go to Times Square, I wanna go with Rusty. lol

Rusty is one cool Cat. you did a great job with this. :+)

I thought this was cleverly well-done. I was actually kind of curious as to what a cat would do for New Years. This was a nice and cheery poem that brought a smile on me. Happy New Year, Rusty!!! Enjoy your catnip!!! And to you too, T. May God bless you with a bright new year.
