Gus’s World 4

Miracle Machine

Our humans have given us many fine things
Like big, cushy pillows and feathers on strings.
But the greatest invention of woman’s or man’s
Is that wonderful gadget for opening cans!

Cans!  Cans!  Beautiful cans!
That marvelous gizmo for opening cans!

Whenever I hear its mechanical whir,
My body responds with an audible purr.
I fly to the kitchen, I drop all my plans,
For nothing’s more thrilling than opening cans!

Cans!  Cans!  Bright, shiny cans!
What could be better than opening cans?

Sometimes it’s tuna and sometimes sardines,
Though sadly it often turns out to be beans.
If you want my opinion, there ought to be bans
On horrible, non-fishy items in cans!

Cans!  Cans!  Mysterious cans!
The suspense is intense when they’re opening cans!

Now playing is pleasure and napping is sweet,
But I’d trade either one for a morsel to eat.
For a treat is a treat, and all felines are fans
Of that crazy contraption for opening cans!

Cans!  Cans!  Heavenly cans!
What utter delight when they’re opening cans!
