Free Cat - Poem by Chuck Audette

a loud crash
shocks me from sleep
that damn cat
knocked my stuff in a heap

what to throw
for a lesson to teach
anger just grows
cause my pillow won't reach

with a taunting me-ow
it exits the scene
but alas, no return
to my x-rated dream

I stare at the ceiling
aware of a loss -
my comfy pillow
which I had to toss

so that cold, cold floor
I eye with a glare
and who do you think's
on my pillow, out there?

free cat, anyone? please?

    Yes, please ship that free cat to me, along with a bottle of CATsup, and please read my poem 'Cats (in the style of Edgar Allan Poe) '.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Also please include your CATalog in case you have anything else free.

    They do do things like this, and they are so darned SMUG about it, sitting and smirking at you because they KNOW they have won! (Report) Reply

    This is hilarious Charles! I feel your pain about cats. One night my wife and I were awakened at 3: 00 am by the blare of the TV set. One of our cats had stepped on the power button on the remote. (Report) Reply

    You gave me a big smile. My cat drives me mad, she's sixteen and plays the old lady very well!

    LOL over and over again, and commiserations - - been there, threw that! Keep an extra pillow handy now, do you? Or maybe the cat has found a new owner to torment. Either way: sweet (or otherwise) dreams to you! ! ! (Report) Reply
