MEOWTSIDE

Oh boy, what a mistake!
Took my twin kitty's outside 
for the first time on a leash.
Tired and lazy, they became instantly awake.

Chasing butterflies, rolling in dirt
Having a good ole' domestic time
Just when I thought they were fine-
Into wildcats did they convert!
Done and bored with the play
They took to stalking prey.

My little babies who had never been outside
Personalities took a divide
went from cute and silly
to Jeckyll and Hyde!
Good thing Mama was there and they were tied!

I took them in before they got mean,
Five minutes later they were clawing at the screen!
"Meowtside!" they were chanting-
raving and ranting!
All the while I am running about the house panting
chasing to and fro
these crazy kitty's I didn't know anymore
My babies I adore-
Now all they wanted was freedom to rove and explore.

Hours later, they finally settled down
These beloved kids of mine-
Are never going out on the town!
