Wanted — A Witch’s Cat

Wanted — a witch’s cat
Must have vigor and spite,
Be expert at hissing,
And good in a fight,
And have balance and poise
On a broomstick at night.

Wanted — a witch’s cat.
Must have hypnotic eyes
To tantalize victims
And mesmerize spies,
And be an adept
At scanning the skies.

Wanted — a witch’s cat,
With a sly, cunning smile,
A knowledge of spells
And a good deal of guile,
With a fairly hot temper
And plenty of bile.

Wanted — a witch’s cat,
Who’s not afraid to fly,
For a cat with strong nerves
The salary’s high
Wanted — a witch’s cat;
Only the best need apply.
