Some Cats

for Alli Warren


every day I see evidence that tells me I should be afraid

later I discover not all my friends are true

here’s a look at some cats


I believe that NBC wants a specific result

a key ingredient in modern police culture is the car chase

mullet girl looking like she having good time


the market is a rabbit warren of distant Navajos

all I ever did was deliver data and collect it again

all I could notice was some children have no books at all


I was the instrument that I must care for

the dots but not the smile

the smile without the university education


the billionaire is clearly not able and it’s a bit poor

what if the main ingredient in his curry is stewed human?

there has to be a pun here someplace or at least a blank


I would like to thank PillsExpert for letting me share

it’s really a good plan paying attention and all

doo doo doo dah dah dah that’s all I want to say to you
