‘Kitty’s Crime’ by David Schultz The Society December 12, 2016 Children's, Humor, Poetry Kitty staring at the tipped fishbowl (whoever felled it left not a hair), With no one home, what was, do you think, The mysterious force that toppled it there? I will honestly say I do not think That ghosts and such visit much these days Or that Petey Canary could lift that drink, Or that elves can’t find a job that pays. No Kitty, it was you, yes! and ever so neatly Tipped over the bowl with Goldie inside. You gulped her whole. Such a slick, slimy treat! And the pouring out water just up and dried.
