I’m a kitten. Don’t know better.
Wanted to escape the weather.
Now I’m alone and stuck up here.
A tiny little ball of fear.
For my life has just begun.
Should be full of joy and fun.
But instead it’s full of strife.
As I hold on for dear life.
Not knowing what’s to come.
Or what happened to my mom.
Holding on and holding tight,
As I scream with all my might.
A tiny noise. May not go far,
Over the engine of the car.
Can you hear me? Cease to drive!
And I might make it out alive.
Oh please! Please come and get me.
Give me lots of love and pet me.
I swear I’ll be a loving friend.
And I’m never doing this again!

Damn that’s effective! Makes me fear right along with the little tyke!
Thanks! I was trying to get inside the tiny little head of the obviously terrified kitten. I also felt that, due to my screen name, it was sort of my duty to give the pitiful little thing a voice.
That was really good!
And thanks for your fun limerick in this week’s Limerick-Off. I hope you’ll be a regular participant!
Thank you! I’d be glad to be a regular Limerick-Off participant. 🙂
I have to wonder if this is a parable of sorts, or simply a cute story about a kitten up a tree. Hmmm….
Here’s my entry: (not a cute one) http://charleslmashburn.wordpress.com/2011/09/04/blood-on-the-moon-2/
It’s actually inspired by a recent news story about a kitten who held on to the gas tank of a car for about 35 miles before the driver could stop and get it out. They had to partially dismantle the car to do it, but the kitty is just fine.
