    I loved your poem, so very witty
    about an ever-growing kitty!
    but I'd avoid this tree, in the fall
    for I dislike raking up hairballs. (Report) Reply

    A outrageously imaginative piece... Purrfect (sorry it had to be said) no seriously this is a brilliant piece of story/ poetry with a fine grasp on language... Bravo. Karen I know maybe this is not what your interested in this but both these poems are perfect 10s (Report) Reply

    Once again I'm astonished that no-one has commented on this. It has perspective, humour, a wild imagination, depth and imagery. This is another fine example of your diverse and fascinating skills as a poet. Comfortable with many genres. I don't know how you think em up but I'm glad you do.
    A triumph of storytelling and comedy
