Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

If it’s Thursday, it must be time for some poetry. Mom wasn’t feeling like writing anything this week, so she left the task to us. The prompt letter is “N.” We decided to take the easy route, however, and use one of the prompt words as our subject. Those words are: 1) Naughty, 2) Nice, 3) Normal and 4) New. We started our poem by combining naughty and nice, but then we thought it would be more truthful just to write about “naughty.”

We Don’t Try to Be Naughty

Sometimes we are naughty.
Cats cannot always control themselves.
Often we’ll trip you on the stairs
And steal treats right off the shelves.

Shredding your newspaper isn’t malicious,
To us it’s our way to get your attention.
And kneading your flesh with claws extended
Isn’t intended to cause you tension.

Nice to naughty can come in a whisker’s flick
When a misplaced paw breaks a bauble,
But we never do it on purpose.
We don’t try to get ourselves in trouble.

Horking in your shoe really isn’t intentional,
As when we make you unhappy, we are sad.
Naughty somehow just comes naturally.
We never set out to make you mad.

When you think we are being naughty,
Just remember it’s not deliberate,
We’re just happy and frisky kitties…
Not uncaring and badly behaved misfits!
