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…
