Kittens and Kids

The paper sack left on the floor has come to life. It’s haunted. Look! It’s growling and gyrating now— gone wild. It’s time somebody took control. Aha! I’ve got ya now, my little kitties in the sack. I’ll get your snack now, Pat and Pete. Okay, I’ll let you ride my back. Ouch! Watch the claws! This afternoon, I’ll put a blanket on my lap. Then you can be so comfy while we cuddle up and take our nap. You’re fighting for the bouncy ball. Sometimes you’re an aggressive pair; but, after all, you’re little ones. Sometimes my human kids won’t share! Don’t climb the curtains, Pat. Oh, Pete, you’ve overturned the water dish. I see what y’all are staring at. You can’t get to the kids’ goldfish! You’re so much like the kids when they were small—just into everything. They're coming down the stairs. We five will have ourselves a happy fling. posted January 17, 2017 Date: June 19, 2018 Contest: Pure Childlike Fun and Enthusiasm Sponsor: Caren Krutsinger Date: March 25, 2019 Contest Title: 2019 Poetry Marathon, Mile 27 Sponsor: Mark Toney
