haiku kitty's response to week 37:

"Take my cookies and
take my drink - but have pity
leave me the cat's food "

" Listen to this fool!
Crazy old man! But why not?
Catch! Here's your cat food!

" I see you've brought food
and none too soon -- for tonight
I would have killed you "

special thanks to haiku kitty :)

week 37: in response to the police blotter account of teens vs. man with cookies, drink and cat food

we needed some "food"
so we got a "gun," for fun,
stole not all, but some

they took my cookies!
they took my drink! what am i
to eat: my cat's food?

meow, crunch, crunch, crunch
i was hungry, now i'm not
crunch, crunch, crunch, meow
