Roweth thou, thy bitty boat.
Gently round the mellow moat.
And merrily, verily,
Thou shall see,
Life is but a reverie.
I chose “Steampunk Kitten” as the next theme for Casual Art, and this is what I came up with. It’s meant to be an homage to Fritz Lang’s 1927 Sci-Fi/Expressionist silent film, Metropolis.
(To be sung to the tune of “Piggies” by the Beatles.)
Have you seen the little kitties,
Lying on the bed?
And for all the little kitties
Life is getting sad.
Always having beds,
To lie around on.
Have you seen the bigger kitties,
With their scratching posts?
You can see them all day scratching,
With their little toes.
Gripping with their claws,
To make them sharper.
Eating food and without paying,
Human slaves they bring it all to them.
Running, sleeping, licking, playing.
What they need’s a damn good spraying!
Everywhere there’s lots of kitties,
Living kitty lives.
You can see them outside hunting,
Little birds and mice.
Trying to entice,
The little mice in.
