Poem:

.

as he sat where he sat
he became big and fat

as he sat where he sat
he never wore a hat

as he sat where he sat
he became as looney as a bat

as he sat where he sat
his lap was home to his cat

as he sat where he sat
he was accused of being a door mat

as he sat where he sat
he was bitten by many a gnat

as he sat where he sat
his pet was a Norway rat

as he sat where he sat
he would share tit for tat

as he sat where he sat
he was protected by his gat

as he sat where he sat
he drank his wine from a vat

as he sat where he sat
his name was Pat
