A poem by Beverly Stock.

Me: Oh, Feline Spirit, will you reply?

Just simple answers, would you try?

Spirit: I’ll Try

Me: What must I do to appease my kitty?

Spirit: Go Buy

Me: But she’s not loved me much before

Spirit: Spend More

Me: What can keep her chaste, her I adore.

Spirit: A Door

Me: What must I do if she’s not kind?

Spirit: Be Blind

Me: What must I do when she gets cross?

Spirit: No Great Loss

Me: She’s like the wind, what if she blows?

Spirit: Gosh, who knows?

Me: Is there no way to moderate her anger?

Spirit: Hang Her

Me: Thank you Feline Spirit, as your answers tell,

She's a fickle cat, so I will guard her well.

Spirit: Fickle cat (from Hell!)
