Original Poem

Cat Morgan is one of the cats in Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. He claims to have sailed the Barbary Coast as a pirate, but is now retired and works as a doorman at the book publishers Faber and Faber. He is a gruff but likeable character. Some might notice that if the letter "p" is inserted between the "a" and "t" in the word "cat" you will get "Capt. Morgan", which may be a reference to Sir Henry Morgan, the famous Welsh pirate or the brand of rum named after him.
