Life-Changing- Growing Old, Going Blind

Poetry By: angellynn

Submission to MAmberConrads "Ooh,It's A Challenge" I chose Life-Changing that has to end with a cat.
This poem is about the changes a person goes through when growing old. Lose of eye sight, memory lose, and the sadness they feel as their body changes. But really.. Do we have to take it out on the cat?

Life-Changing-Growing Old, Going Blind

My master's getting older

I think she's going blind,

she lose's things so easily

I'd say she's lost her mind.


She crys because she's changing

getting older is the pits,

her memory falls asleep at times

It really gives her fits.


Now Shadow is her poodle

he's a sneaky guy,

blaming me for all his accidents

all that dog can do is lie.


Today she took me for a ride

to where, I didn't know,

when we returned, the poodle laughed

how I hate that poodle so.


Well I'm not a poodle

I'm a cat you see,

my master took me for the dog

she took my dignity.


I know she's going through changes

but am I the one to blame,

Why should I be punished

can they not see the shame?


The poodle's rolling on the floor

giving me much sorrow,

laugh while you can, you stupid dog

I'm due to be neutured tomorrow.
