My cat's become so critical
of the pieces that I write
he kneads to express his opinion
and he always thinks he's right.
He twitches his ear-itation
if I don't write in Senryus.
If what I write displeases him
he's under the bed for refuge.
He's worse than many teachers -
his reviews are seldom neutered -
he pointedly wags that twitchy tail
or cat-calls disapproval.
He laid across my laptop
for half the afternoon
‘til I promised an ode to tuna
which earned purrs of hallelujah!
Very funny! Where would we be without our furry purry critics! Thank you for sharing your poem.
Loved this lovely account of the lovely cat, who did not seem ferocious to me at all. 'it's hard to find an audience in a pandemic' - you've got at least one audience, I can assure you.
