Little Kitty climbed a tree;
little boy chased, skinned both knees
inching out across the branch...
limb snapped, boy fell, tore his pants.
Fireman came, brought his ladder,
climbed up high -- thought he had her.
Little Kitty spat and hissed;
Fireman grabbed air, tumbled, missed.
Wind blew, Kitty climbed up higher;
Onlookers' predictions dire.
Kitty watched their endless schemes
from her lofty perch of green.
Several men of similar ilk
set out trappings, bowls of milk.
Kitty ate a bird instead,
dropping feathers on their heads.
"Fuck that cat!" each finally glowered,
cursing Kitty's treetop tower.
"Fall and die, bitch! Starve to death!"
Kitty stretched, blinked, unimpressed.
Darkness came and quite nimbly
Kitty leaped down from the tree,
shook her tail and hit the street...
Every cat lands on her feet.
