BAD CAT!!


stealthy creeping, belly low

furtive feline, eyes aglow


tender prey in perilous plight

silver bell on collar quiet


padded feet, ghostly paws

constant feeding hungry maw


switch on the charm, allowed inside

to curl cozy, warm and dry


in the wee hours as I sleep


you clutch and claw, tear and rip

jump on counters, dishes tip


I wake and stumble, search to find

a monster of a different kind


a furry fiend under couch or bed

dragged out by tail or yowling head


despite my rage I am impressed

ask the question with panting breath


how can a creature of such renown

purveyor of death without a sound


be so DAMN LOUD?
