Riff On Pradip Chattopadhyay Of Mice And Men, And Cats


You can’t expect
To take my balls
With such a drop;
Production falls;
My leaping, willingness to pounce
Upon the mice,
I hereby renounce.
If someone slashed
Your private parts
Tell me not
You’d not lose heart,
To hunt down the wily mouse
That so infests your crumbling house;
It is the arrogance of man
To de-ball a cat
And then demand
That same level
Of devoted service;
Without my balls
I feel so nervous.
I prefer to sit and crouch
And watch the mice
Reproduce
Throughout your house;
I find it heartening and so refreshing
That intact genitals
Are so enmeshing;
It makes me temporally forget
That nightmare visit
To your Vet.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
