Abundance of flowers, I step on so staunchly.
Grinding with my heels, upon them so promptly.
I grin and growl as I frolic through the yard.
Sounds of my razing are the notes of a bard.
A butterfly, flapping, zips by my ear,
with a quick slap of my hand, he is no longer near.
Fallen to the ground, dying too soon.
The slight rustles of his wings, to me, are a joyous tune.
A noise behind, what could it be?
I quickly turn in concern, and what did I see?
A kitten, so fluffy, pouncing on a bee.
Sneaking up behind it, hoping it wouldn’t flee.
Ever so quietly, I grasp a rock, and kneel to one knee.
Smashing its skull, and watching it bleed.
My brother came out, screaming in choler.
I begged him not to tell, I even offered a dollar.
He winced and turned, running toward my mother.
I tripped him, sat on his face and listened as he smothered.
Now what shall I do? I’ll surely be amerced!
Oh woe is me, so troubled and cursed.
In quick thought, I gathered them to be submersed.
Into the pond beside the house they went, it could have been worse.
I never told a soul and no one ever discovered,
the wretched fate that had stricken my kitten and brother.
I’m a lawyer now, and if you visit, look above the door.
It will say welcome to the law firm of Grimace, Grime and Galore.
