Dinner
(a sad story)

One day I took the cat chow box
and whistled loud to call her in
I shook it out on her plate and then...
All that came out was a grey furry skin

Before I could even realize
That I'd shaken out a real live mouse
The cat had jumped on top of it
Not even a squeak was heard in the house

And I? Perplex I stood for quite some time
I actually love those grey furry mice
The Cat? She said "WOW that was cool,
Next time could you shake out a bigger size?"

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Hurray for the kitty
I'm glad that she
Caught that rascal mouse
With agility.
Though I will admit
That's a cute little face,
I've yet to meet the mouse
Who knows his place!!!

Ha ha I sure wish I could see your faces when this should ever happen to you. I can tell you that I really didn't believe my own eyes at first.
