Second Kittenhood - Poem by Richard George

'Who DID Prince Charles marry? '
Dolly asked me in Tesco.
It was 1996.
I trumped with my heart card
'He ought to have chosen the person he loved'.
'I love my cat.
Your cat knows what it likes'.

Charles married Camilla.
Puss's last breath
was a year and a day before 9/11.
And I wondered
if Dot's cat died
who she would recognise.
