sorry i killed your cat

the other day when carrying it
your cat dug its claws into me
i overreacted and sadly triggered
the defenestration of paws

when a cat is afraid
out go their hooks
and they reach for anything
stable so they don’t fall

and now i’m sorry I took this
act of aggression
for more than it was a
cry for help

you can’t get mad
at a scaredy cat
while being one yourself

i promise
i will buy you a puppy
