From the book:
Sometimes “Meow” just doesn’t quite get the point across …
All cats are artistic, as demonstrated by their abstract hairballs, expertly stripped curtains, and the precise way they arrange themselves on top of your pile of freshly cleaned clothes. Brought to you by cat poets the world over and with instant classics such as, “I Lick Your Nose,” “Tiny Boxes,” and “Some of My Best Friends are Dogs,” each poem in this collection reveals the true artistic and neurotic genius that every feline possesses.
Why Are You Screaming?
Why are you screaming?
What did I do wrong?
Why are you crying?
How can I make it right?
Would you like it in a different color?
Would you like it in a different size?
Would you like it in a different room?
I just wanted to show my love
I just wanted to express my thanks
I just wanted to put a dead mouse
on your sheets
But now you are screaming
And I don’t know how to make you stop
