COPYCAT

by Greg Mackie

>>>

Every morning,

my cat,

jumps onto the kitchen table,

steals a milk top, 

jumps down,

drops it on the floor,

walks past,

(casually) 

pretending to see it for the first time,  

(he’s a great actor)

pounces on it, 

takes it between his paws, 

pops it back into his mouth – 

and then repeats the whole scene,

about 40 times.

>>>>

Eventually, 

the sound of plastic, 

bouncing, scraping, screeching,

on a wooden floor

drives me mad

and I throw a shoe at him –

although not really;

because he’s just following

my bad example.

>>>

Every evening,

when the kids are sleeping,

I take a tub of ice cream,

and put it on the kitchen table,

and walk past it,

(casually)

pretending to see it for the first time,

(I deserve an Oscar) 

take just a spoonful –

and then I repeat the whole scene,

about 40 times.

>>>

Eventually,

all the ice-cream is gone,

and nobody, 

unfortunately,

throws a shoe at me, either.
