Summary :

In a previous incarnation Archy the Cockroach was a free-verse poet, while his companion Mehitabel, a cat in her ninth life, claims to have been Cleopatra. Archy records their songs and observations on the boss’s typewriter late at night. But he is not strong enough to make capital letters so it all comes out lower case.
