People you’ve known forever can seem to change,
Hard not to in these fast-moving, trying times.
My brother is attempting to monetize his poems,
Man, he used to be all about the rhymes…
“Love whomever you desire,” the articles say,
“Open up and let your spirit run free!”
Yet I reap nothing but disgust and scorn,
Because I wanna cuddle with a manatee!
I love my kitten lots and lots.
I love her more than tater tots!
I love my kitten, yes I do!
I would never, ever put her in the stew.
Hurricanes, politics, hatred and war,
Every day of our lives are filled with struggles.
And whenever I am feeling overwhelmed,
I can always depend on kitten snuggles.
