Poetry Friday

In honor of my cat-related article up at Associated Content, I’m posting a cat poem today.

Had Tiberius Been a Cat
Cruel, but composed and bland,
Dumb, inscrutable and grand,
So Tiberius might have sat,
Had Tiberius been a cat.

Matthew Arnold 1822-1888 

Tiberius was the second emperor of Rome.  You can read more about him here.  I’m not sure if this is the Tiberius the poet intended, but it sounds a lot like him.
