    Origami Fortune Teller


    Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
    And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card,
    Which is blank, is something he carries on his back,
    Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
    The Hanged Man. Fear death by water….

    T.S. Eliot.

    Rum Tum Tiger

    Character in the play “CATs!” was borrowed from Old Possums book of Cats by T.S. Eliot
    “The Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat:
    If you offer him pheasant he would rather have grouse.
    If you put him in a house he would much prefer a flat,
    If you put him in a flat then he’d rather have a house.
    If you set him on a mouse then he only wants a rat,
    If you set him on a rat then he’d rather chase a mouse.
    Yes the Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat –
    And there isn’t any call for me to shout it:
    For he will do
    As he do do
    And there’s no doing anything about it!”
    — T.S. Eliot.

    I wrote a poem about a pet cat , based off T.S. Eliots poem, who also had curious behaviors..

    “O o o o that Shakespeherian Rag—
    It’s so elegant
    So intelligent”
