Ode to Che

(written by my daughter for her kitten)

Will you sashay with me

You small Chimichanga?

Madame fuzzy pants,

Oh big Stromboli.

You make tiny war

Where’er you roam.

You make big smells
In the living room.
Lick not my toes
And my sleeping face
Or from my bed
You’ll be banished.
Eat slow your wet food
Or on my rug you will vomit.
Oh Purr Master Flash,
Oh Miss Gitche Gumi
Oh you Pizza Chicken
Oh absurdist sensei
Come kill this bottle cap
For one half an hour
And keep me safe
From all stuffed mice.

-Alanna Wray
