Kitty’s Lament

Sweet Sleep

there was a
Lion
in my bed last night
he took up
All
the room

no matter how i
Turned
there was
fur and musk and
Drool

Hey!
hissed i
you Lion!
i spit, extending
All
my claws

but Lion only
Laughed
(as Kings are wont to do)
and stretching, held me
fast and tight, with one
well-calloused paw

and so we slept
all through the night
the Lion and his Kitty
and loathe was i
to ever wake to
Just
this little ditty
