Would You Believe

A toothy T-Rex
came into the house, and
ate the cat, just like that.

One bite,
two gulps—her meow
was hard to swallow.

He left as he came,
all I need do is explain,
it was that bitchy cat, or me.

(I promise the cat wasn't harmed in the writing of this poem; even an emaciated, hunger-crazed T-Rex wouldn't mess with her)

Very very visual, and (of course)

very very funny!!!!!!!!!!!

Had a cat that ran across my driveway

and when I saw it I just gunned the

car engine. The kids would scream

at me. The cat finally bought the

farm when a driver hit the cat.

I was taking trash down to the

curb one night and I leaned over

the trash can and there was the

DEAD cat!!!!!!!!!! I almost


Liked the imagey of a T-Rex going

after a cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What next?

Cows going after chickens?

Margie said...

Funny one Pat!

My cat is acting very strange since we brought the puppy home.
I have never seen her hiss before, but she is now!

lainey said...

Oh Pat! So funny, but better be careful... cats will wait to the right time to get revenge.

Nea said...

haha, so you offered up the cat.........

I had a vet once tell me, rather smuggly, when I asked why females cats were so much more feisty than males,,"can't that be said for the females of most species?"

gautami tripathy said...

That is one good write. How you even concieve like this is beyond me...what I know is I like to read.

firebird said...

Yeah! I get a kick out of this--even though I'm a cat lover--
This reminds me of the scene in "Jurassic Park", where the T-Rex eats the dog...somehow I think most viewers were rooting for the dinosaur...
