The Kitten Tree


Two tiny stripey kittens

think that I’m a tree

with sharpened claws

and agile paws

they scale my legs

to the knee.


At table height

they alight

to see what they can get

a tasty treat,

some cheese, some meat,

two cheeky little pets.


Scratched and sore

I shoo them off

to scamper on the floor,

but turn my back

and just like that,

they shimmy up for more.
