Every morning,

my cat,

jumps onto the kitchen table,

steals a milk top, 

jumps down,

drops it on the floor,

walks past,


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.



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,


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.



all the ice-cream is gone,

and nobody, 


throws a shoe at me, either.
