(Be- cause I am a cat that likes to Gallop about doing good) But he did not move, instead He raised his hand as if To land me a cuff So I made to dodge so as to Prevent him Bringing it orf, Un-for-tune-ately I slid On a banana skin Some Ass had left instead Of putting in the bin. So His hand caught me on the cheek I tried To lay his arm open from wrist to elbow With my sharp teeth Because I am A cat that likes to gallop about doing good. Would you believe it? He wasn't there My teeth met nothing but air, But a Voice said: Poor cat, (Meaning me) and a soft stroke Came on me head Since when I have been bald. A martyr to doing good. Also I heard a swoosh As of wings, and saw A halo shining at the height of Mrs Gubbing's backyard fence, So I thought: What's the good Of galloping about doing good When angels stand in the path And do not do as they should Such as having an arm to be bitten off All the same I Intend to go on being A cat that likes to Gallop about doing good So Now with my bald head I go, Chopping the untidiy floweers down, to and fro, An' scooping up the grass to show Underneath The cinder path of wrath Ha ha ha ha, ho, Angels aren't the only ones who do not know What's what and that Galloping about doing good Is a full-time job That needs An experienced eye of earthly Sharpness, worth I dare say (If you'll forgive a personal note) A good deal more Than all that skyey stuff Of angels that make so bold as To pity a cat like me that Gallops about doing good.</pre> </div> <!-- font-size --> <p>From <cite>John Gay's book of CATS</cite> by John Gay 1975</p> </div> <!-- col-md-5 --> <div class="col-sm-7" style="background-color:#DCD0C0;padding:30px"> <p>Besides the obvious differences in the two, my father was a World War II veteran and Purple Heart Recipient which left him with 50% disabled. Nevertheless, he went on to raise and support our family without reliance on public assistance. He was a member of the <a href="http://www.purpleheart.org/" target="_blank"> Military Order of Purple Heart </a> and loved cats, as all of our family did. In his retirement, in addtion to taking care of his own indoor cats, he faithfully fed the outdoor cats who came for a handout.</p> <p>My father was lucky enough to live to the age of 93, but Gareth was not so fortunate. He succumbed to the effects of a malignant sarcoma at 9 years of age.</p> <p>It was sad to see them both go from active, healthy, self-reliant individuals to states of humiliation over their growing frailties. They have both given me so much love and happiness in their own ways. Not a day goes by that I don't think of either of them and miss them.</p> </div> </div> <!-- row --> </div> <!-- container fluid --> </div> <!-- class="contianer" ..> </body>
