Moshi’s Botty

Moshi’s botty is quite grotty

I’m sorry to say
Let’s put it this way
He’s no friend of the litter tray.

What a dear little kitty you are!
I’d love to give you a kiss-y
Were it not for the fact
Your bum’s a bit shitty.

You’re a fluffy ball of cotton wool
For sure you’re adorable
You’ve charmed your way into our hearts
Although, to be honest, you smell of farts.

Forgive me if this seems rude
The subject is rather crude
But I really don’t know […]

The Kitten Feeling

A poem about a mood called The Kitten Feeling.

The Kitten Feeling

Heavy lidded eyes
Sad stickiness
The soreness of meowing

Nothing to do
Cocooned in a blanket
Being so comfortable aches

Electric pink sunset
Wet purring in your ear
Time has nowhere to go

From the clouds to your ears
Mewling music descends:
A choir of somnambulistic cats

Get out of feeling
The kitten feeling

Can’t —

Stuck inside fur.
