  THE CAMERONIAN CAT  

There was a Cameronian cat
    Was hunting for a prey,
And in the house she catched a mouse
    Upon the Sabbath-day.

The Whig, being offended
    At such an act profane,
Laid by his book, the cat he took,
    And bound her in a chain.

"Thou damned, thou cursed creature!
    This deed so dark with thee!
Think'st thou to bring to hell below
    My holy wife and me?

"Assure thyself that for the deed
    Thou blood for blood shalt pay,
For killing of the Lord's own mouse
    Upon the Sabbath-day."

The presbyter laid by the book,
    And earnestly he prayed
That the great sin the cat had done
    Might not on him be laid.

And straight to execution
    Poor pussy she was drawn,
And high hanged up upon a tree--
    The preacher sung a psalm.

And, when the work was ended,
    They thought the cat near dead;
She gave a paw, and then a mew,
    And stretchËd out her head.

"Thy name," said he, "shall certainly
    A beacon still remain,
A terror unto evil ones
    For evermore, Amen."

                         Unknown.
