Free Cat Poem by Chuck Audette

Free Cat

Rating: 3.9

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?

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!

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.
