A Pantoum Ode to Gryphon

THE KITTEN

The kitten rules the house.
There’ll be no turning back.
The other cats may grouse,
But none will dare attack.

There’ll be no turning back,
She’s been let loose to roam.
But none will dare attack
The new kitten in her home.

She’s been let loose to roam.
She wants to pounce and play!
The new kitten in her home
Scares the rest away.

She wants to pounce and play!
The other cats may grouse.
Scared, they run away.
The kitten rules the house.
