A Life of Hard Knocks
She came in a box,
frightened and unsure of her world;
her life full of hard knocks,
as a kit' taken to the woods and hurled.
And a farmer saved her from an attack by hawks,
from there she found a home in a large city house;
but was alone except for clocks,
with no food 'till late evenings not even a mouse.
She wandered the dark,
rooms and cried for her dead mother;
could see a lush green park,
and so wished for her sisters and brother.
Then, one day they threw her in a box so scary,
later a girl opened the box and reached in,
but kitty was very wary;
this is your home said the girl- gosh you are thin!
"And this is the story,
of how Snuggles kitty came to me;
the very first day she ate my morning glory,
but, we two were always meant to be."
