Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



It’s that time again to join Two Spoiled Cats (Angel Sammy and Teddy) with another poem. Once again Cooper Murphy has stepped forward. This week’s prompt letter is “N.” Cooper Murphy took the opportunity to write about some of the merit badges he has earned recently as a Cat Scout.

Nip and Ninja Moves

Nip is good and yummy no matter the form.
So today on the cigar I began to perform
The Bitey and some vigorous Bunnykicking.
In fact I gave that thing a darn good “licking.”
When I finished it was soaked with Cooper spit,
Which didn’t bother me one little bit.
That kitty toy got just what it deserved.
Not playing with it would have been absurd,
Especially as two merit badges I earned,
While some important defense tools I learned.
If one of my fursibs should get feisty or mean,
They’ll be sorry they bothered this fighting machine,
As I also have superior ninja skills
And to use them would give me a great big thrill.
But please don’t think that I am being a brat.
I’m just a young and spunky kitty cat,
Earning Cat Scout merit badges and having fun.
I’d never do anything to hurt a loved one!
