flat cat apology

this note my good neighbor
is my unskilled way
of letting you know of
our trouble yesterday.

my car made this thumping
thought i had a flat,
but when i looked underneath
i found your poor cat.

“your cat has nine lives”,
i’d sure love to tell you,
“and eight are still left!”
how i wish that were true.

but the whole “nine lives”
it’s just a big fake.
your dear pet is gone,
it’s now a pancake.

i’d undo if i could
your cat by car smitten;
the best that i can
is give you a kitten.

Artist's Description

start with insomnia. remember a story of a friend running over a neighbor’s cat long ago. remember a bit of doggerel read somewhere. add an already odd, dark sense of humor and VIOLA! ;-) .

no offence meant to cat lovers. no cats were hurt in the construction of this doggerel
