An Observational Statement About the Tedious Circumstance of Being Alive from the Viewpoint of a Household Cat - A Poem

Sometimes I write things with unnecessarily long titles, and sometimes I write things with necessarily long titles.  This is an example of the latter.

An Observational Statement About the Tedious Circumstance of Being Alive from the Viewpoint of a Household Cat


i am

a cat

i am not

a human

i do not have

carefully laid plans

nor

a voice in

the world

and that should

bother me

perhaps make me

upset

but aside from

the institutionalized ennui

of my

current existence

i find

i am

content

with taking

your chair

and getting fur

on your best suit

five minutes before

you leave

for an important meeting

  1. :D Yes.

    Just yes.

    I love this. Trying to find the word that describes the style of this poem. I want to say like ee cummings but I may be thinking of someone else.

    Perhaps a cross of cummings and Oscar Wilde?

    Anyway it is really brilliant. I love it :)
