My Kitty Cat


My brain is going to blow up!

Right out of my head!

Then I will step on it!

And walk away!

Clean from guilt

__I'll be

When the theater of life prevails

And crushes this


____little heart of mine


I woke up in terror

Not knowing where I was going to be fed

The dog walked over my head

So I KILLED him!

NO DOGGY was going to step on MY head!


__the years flew by

And I found myself a cat

She loved me

__and wagged her tail

I fed her food

__and she was happy


The hours of the ticking clock grew into years

Now me and my kitty are separated

And she is old

__and losing her sight

I left her with my family

In search for my independence


__she will pass on"

I was told


Why must my kitty be

Gone for good?

Why can't she just

Stay alive?

Why is God taking

My kitty cat?
