Well, clear off the table
For I don't think I am able
Put me on the table top
With a leaden little plop

The food was rich and sweet
But I should've been more wise
For on the third course of meat
Is where I met my demise

Well, I stopped when I knew
That my face was turning blue
But by then it was too late
Face first I fell in my plate

Rising from their plates
Other diners checked my eyes
But it was far too late
For I had met my demise

So bathe my cold, hard skin
Shave the whiskers from my chin
Dress me in my favorite kilt
Place me in a box well built

As the worms and beetles feed
On my skin and on my eyes
I truly hope that I will be
Like me their own demise


Alicat, the Persnikitty

 As I sit here dimly thinking
Watching modem lights a-blinking
Churning out poetic hash.
Lord, in all Your piety,
Help me keep my sanity:
Please don't let the modem crash! --Alicat

I think maybe I'll skip breakfast this morning.

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Cute poem you have here, although it turned my stomach just a bit. Well, turning my stomach isn't difficult to do.  LOL!

Uh..sorry guys.  *Shrug*
But I guess a wonderous lesson has been learned....never put your computer on the kitchen table, and never eat at your computer.
