Ringo-The Alcoholic Cat IT

Seven years gone by his eighth life now spent Stumbling flank comes Ringo, my fat drunk cat Sabbatical dreams after quarantine As I Wait for the dreaded number nine The label I hide on the wine bottle Has been soaked in poison now for a time Promptly stuck for Ringo, it hits his paw They told me of the psycho cat's demise Not too long after his last curtain call No guilt do I feel, for that mean old cat Eerie board walk creaks near the white sand beach Each and every time I think he’s back September 14, 2020 Collaborate With Me Poetry Contest Sponsor: Kim Rodrigues

Makes me think of an old song from my childhood 'But the - cat came back - the very next day-' still gives me the creeps!

I kept thinking of that movie Pet Sematary as I wrote this.

I'm trying to give you an out for poisoning a cat, Mark. Psycho or not, your lines are hilarious, but those creaks you hear on the boardwalk may be him returning. lol
