2018 Sonnet 40

Cat Lady Ziggy feeding feral strays,
Guess we never knew what she was up to.
Tabby, black, calico, white, spotted, gray,
Cats and kittens, Ziggy serving sup to.

Cat Lady Ziggy thinks she’s doing good,
Herding cats into this great location.
Rat-free and squirrel-free, no birds in the wood.
Colony of carnivores at station.

Cat Lady Ziggy, must be all alone,
Could be feeding birds in her own back yard.
Feeding feral cats in the Twilight Zone,
Roaming vandals, corpses their calling card.

Ziggy, let them scatter. Just leave them be.
Spay them, fillet them, if it’s up to me.
