1/10th of NaPoWriMo Done
So here’s the deal – this virus needs a cat
To reproduce, but it can live in us
And many other mammals – say, a rat.
Now naturally rats do not much like dear Puss.
But we do. And we make a lot of trash,
Which rats do like, so what’s a rat to do?
That virus in that rat that’s not so brash
Around a cat – it has a problem, too.
Or did. It’s learned to give a wicked twist
To Ratty’s brain so Ratty finds the smell
Of cat-piss very high up on the list
Of things for which he’d brave the gates of Hell.
I know some people don’t like cats. They’re crazy
Not loving creatures so divinely lazy.
This one was fun to write, even though it took me most of the day.
