Noll on Cousin Simba

For near on forty years,
ever since My Own's sister
chose the name for the family's first cat:
---
There has always been a "Simba."
-----
Simba the Fourth,
Coy inside cat
Dark pointed, blue-eyed Siamese,
Shares his homey rustic ranch
With dogs, kitties, horses, geese.
Whiskers as long as walrus tusks
Gentle giant, gentle meez.
