The early bird may get the worm,
But just remember that
The one the bird’s fate will confirm
Will be an early cat.
Perhaps the cat is hunted by
An owl hoo ’s earlier yet –
The earlier you get to try,
They luckier you get.
It shows the way to be well fed,
And really have a ball,
When time comes round for going to bed,
Is not to go at all.
