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?

    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

    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
