Race To The Christmas Tree

Clawing my way up the Christmas tree,

My furry face filled with glee!

I’ll be the star this year,

I quickly glance around, the coast is clear…

 

I continue my quest for the top,

Until I hear a sudden hop!

Carrots the rabbit is here,

Oh dear!

 

I quickly climb up the Christmas tree,

My face with no more delighted glee!

Carrots wants to race,

Bring it on, mate!

 

Her hopping skills are put to the test,

But my climbing is the best!

Suddenly, my paw slips on a bauble,

And the Christmas tree takes a fall!

Uh oh..

 

Me and Carrots tumble to the ground,

All the ornaments clang and pound!

Feet run down the stairs,

Carrots gives me a quick glare! (How rude!)

 

Now it’s all my fault!

My competitive race has been stopped to a halt!

I saunter off with a pouty face,

And bury my face in the blanket of lace.

 

Once my owners put up the tree,

They go upstairs to go to sleep,

Now I want to climb Carrots’ hutch!

I don’t want to get in trouble, so wish me luck!

¬†Merry Christmas everyone! Remember, Christmas is about spending time with your family and Jesus’ birth, it’s not about cats and rabbits climbing up the tree. Have an AWESOME Christmas, and I’ll see you in my next article, bye!

    Loved it! But next time try to make it a bit more clear or give some more hints that the main character is a cat. But over all great article! See you all after Christmas!

    Your poem was great I loved it! But I agree with Olivia, It was a little unclear that the main character was a cat.
