Blessings are Fishes

Charlie stomps off to find her own food

Cat’s tail whips into the air

Human isn’t being fair!

 

Cat’s tail slashes with each mew

Human is sitting in her preacher pew!

 

There’s no fish in my food!

And that ain’t any good!

The chicken livers are dry!

Can’t you even try?

 

Human explains, make excuses

Placates – it’s not that she refuses

She simply hasn’t got

Promise! It isn’t a plot!

 

Cat stomps off

Life here is rough

 

Oye, Dame Densch

I’m only a mensch

  1. Poor cat. I wonder if my dogs have similar thoughts. Thank you for your comment. Point well taken. Apologies. Mine was inappropriate.

    Our cat is 16, and he needs “senior food” or he throws up–making him mostly an outside critter these days. A bunch of us at one time wrote “dog poems’–thus becoming dog poets.

    Haha! I owned that cat! Um, two of them… at two different times. Sometimes the blessing of patience and forbearance comes as lessons rather than in a nicely-wrapped package. Fish it is!

    The blessing of having a picky cat who wants fish. I suppose cats are usually blessings.

I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
