My gravel drive is being used
As a giant litter tray,
No matter what I try to do
There are new poohs every day.
I clean it up and hose it down
And spray it all once more
But still the postman has to mind
The mound right by the door.
I know it's more than just one cat
The evidence is clear
That all the local felines know
The public loo is here!
I hid one night to catch them out
But there was one big flaw -
They could see when I could not
So not a thing I saw.
But with the morning light I found
Their calling cards were there,
And two cats sitting on the wall
As if it was a dare.
That was when I realised
The war could not be won
For cats are far superior
When all is said and done.
There's only one thing left to do
Before I'm madly raving -
I'll have to hide my gravel drive
Beneath a ton of paving.
