They dash. You’ll never catch a full glimpse

of an Oxford cat. You’ll wait a whole day and still miss.

You may be lucky to see a paw, an ear or a tail

but approaching them or even petting is a fail.

They’re elusive and have places to be.

If you try to be clever and put together a scheme

they’ll find out and use a razor-sharp sixth sense

and that is a gift against which there is no defense.

When I stroll around the streets of Jericho

I often see felines darting to and fro.

Sometimes they stop and stare from afar.

Then run and disappear under someone’s car.

They run the city but in a true Gatsby style –

appearing to the party only once in a long while.

But on your trips through Oxford if you ever get lost

just follow the omens of the clever cat ghosts…
