The Owl and the Pussycat

Hope this gives everyone a lift on this unsettling day. 

The owl and the pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat.
They took some honey and plenty of money
Wrapped up in five pound note.

I love your illustrations. Sweet and memorable in a scarry, wholly changed world.
