a poem by jennifer:
there used to be five
back when the children were none.
as the next decade passed, that number came down until there was only one
the number of children has now reached three
the cat met her fate,
live fast and die young
and suddenly, the pets number none.
but all is set to change
in the upcoming days.
each child with it's heart set
one wants a bird
one wants a mouse
one wants a fish
all want a cat....
and i can't help but question the tempting of fate
three pets that one cat could put to an end.
the animal odds show that we are left with
