Miss Missy is a Lion

Cat on Stairs

Miss Missy is a lion
prowling through
the Serengeti

She makes this quite known
when I accidentally trip
upon her on the stairs

Although her eyes sting
and her tail crooks
where I’ve trodden
she yowls fearsomely
and scratches retribution

  1. Nicely done! You painted the picture for me well, and the last two lines, especially, match the “no nonsense” look on Miss Missy’s face! 🙂
