On the Limitations of Man

Originally posted in the comments section of Dosho Mike Post's most excellent blog, Wild Fox Zen, this little poem is, in my view, the sort of thing a cat would write should it ever deign to take up the art of the written word.

They do alright with four fingers and a thumb,

They can groom their faces quite well 

But even a Holy Man can't clean 

His tail with his tongue.
