Reclusive-Lynn White

Reclusive

He was a hermit, 

a recluse living in a cave with his cats.

He had a long strong thread

made of cat gut

and he sat all day 

every day

playing cat’s cradle 

and all that jazz

on his home made guitar.

And then one day

the cats decided

enough was enough

they were all jazzed out.

So they ate him up

and played rock ’n’ roll.
