Curiosity Killed The Cat - Poem by Jon M. Nelson

They say Curiosity killed the cat,
Well there is a story behind that.
It's not the reason that you may think,
When you hear it, your heart will sink.

The cat was lazy and did nothing all day,
And it always seemed to be in the way.
It would lie in your path and try to trip,
And if you didn't catch yourself you'd slip.

It would shed its fur balls everywhere,
And the house would be covered in cat hair.
It was a friendly cat, don't get me wrong,
So I don't want to make this story too long.

The cat one day was in the neighbor's yard,
And it must have let down its guard.
I heard barking and growling from outside,
And when I checked, I'd seen my cat had died.

My neighbor left his dog off of the leash,
He didn't know the furry it would unleash.
It was a tragic end for my cat you see,
My neighbor's dog's name was Curiosity.
