contemptuous cat

 

I read this poem by Wendy Cope today:

 

An Unusual Cat Poem

 

My cat is dead
But I have decided not to make a big
                                  tragedy out of it.

 

It made me wonder how the cat would have replied. Here's my rebuttal on the cat's behalf:

 

An All-Too-Usual Human Poem

 

My human is cold
But I have decided not to be at
                              all surprised.
