People were staring, car horns blaring,
Dogs barked with rising alarm.
Stopped to look around and saw,
Fresh blood streaming down my arm!
10 – 12 hours each day at my job,
Just trying to stay inspired.
Hopefully, I’ll publish several more poems,
Before I am finally expired…
Sammy and I are not quite the same,
I am a human, she es el gato.
The thing however, we both love,
Is a tasty tuna taco!
Mired in depression and corporate life,
All they want from me is to take, take, take.
My day did get a little brighter though,
Someone brought me a fresh cupcake!
He wrote those silly poems,
And made a few folks laugh.
The last thing that he ever wrote
Made a fitting epitaph.
