Fifi Gets Put Into Timeout - Poem by Dave Malone

because she experienced a Calico meltdown.
Her declawed, tiny front feet give no fight
when she is placed beside the bath
and made to sit for ten whole minutes—
tough for any cat and more so for her,
a high-minded Calico with plans
of rearranging the living room furniture.

Her adversary, Dawson, not a darling boy,
but a slobbering boxer, shaped like Massachusetts,
escapes his timeout penalty for ignoring Fifi's hissy fit.
So Dawson lies at the front door on a Pier One rug
where he puts head to paws as if
nothing ever happened and nothing ever would.
