Poetry War: Why do cats…


Why do cats sleepย in the worst possible places?


Why do cats insist upon inhabiting strange spaces?


Why do cats precariously perch upon a ledge?

They wonder why they’re stomped or fried

or jammed into a wedge.

I really want to understand why cats will flail and fly

at just the very second that I happen to walk by.

The genius who can answer this deserves a wild applause.

Can someone help me spare my legs from frantic kitty claws?
