The Cat Sat on the Mat
The Cat and the Wordplay
Myles: ‘The Cat Sat on the Mat’ is a well known phrase. Sometimes it’s used as an example of bad poetry because it has such an obvious rhyme and rhythm. I decided to play around with this phrase and see where it led me.
Some poems have a moral at their heart (see Ms. Dinosaur). But others are just fun and silly. This poem is one of the silly ones. Both kinds of poems are good.
Here’s this week’s poem
