Steven Clayman: Catty Comments


The noses of doggies
Are not known for dryness.
Is there some kind of leakage
Way down deep in the sinus?

And puppy dog jowls
Are prone to be drooling.
Is there some inner plumbing
Crying out for re-tooling?

As for vocal expression,
I have this admonition:
Sheer volume can never
Ensure erudition.

The descendants of predators? They
Are now too dim-witted to prey!
When confronted by one
I’ll not be outdone
In the battle to have the last say.

Tail twitching toward space,
A quick turnabout grace
Puts my anus in place
Like a fart in the face
As I saunter so smartly away.

Dog and cat noses almost toching
