Drovers diary, who shaved the cat.?

Drovers diary, who shaved the cat.?

The shearers worked hard all day long
Went back to there quarters to a terrible pong,

The station cat, it turns out,
lives here too and roundabout.
And at night it loved to roam
Bringing all these dead things right on home.

One dark night it bought home a rat
And stored it in gun shearers hat
Well, he found it on Friday after beers
Stuck on his hat, maggots round the ears.

The gun shearer went berserk, sheer bloody mad
To see a grown man like that was awful sad.
The cat of course went to ground
Making damn sure it wasn’t found.

On Tuesday night it re appeared
Head to toe it had been sheared
A hairless cat,but with a whiskery chin
Standing there quivering atop the garbage bin.

The shearers laughed and rolled about
No one had the heart to throw it out.
Gun shearer stood there with a knowing smile
Got his revenge by a country mile!
