Nine Syllables in Every Line

Cat - him is a little ball o' fur.
Scat - you get him quickly out de door.
Log - him is a forest tree dat fell.
Logic - him just got de trut' to tell.
Catalog - you get him down at Sears.
Logical - is what's between yo' ears.
Scatological - well shut my mouth!
Eschatological - world's gone south.
