Dick Whittington's cat - with blue ears!

Dick Whittington
Idealist, impoverished.
City dreamer,
Keep it upper!

Weary, disillusioned
Hungry, collapsed.
Infested by mice,
Tiny room -
Terrific cat!
Invested, traded,
No cat:
Going home.
Turn again!                           (Astonished, he decided to stay.)
Obtained ‘Mayor’

Never forgot.
