My Essay, By The Cat

It was 3 o clock in the morning

And i was writing my essay

I knew this was my warning

That last minute is not the way

 

I typed as fast as I could, regardless

Who knows what I will say

My eyes red in the darkness

I’ll finish this right away

 

And then my cat walks on my laptop

And starts typing her own mess

She makes it all in caps now

And licks the screen again

 

And then my cat hits the delete

Thank god i have a backup

My do you need love right now

When I have a paper to complete!

 

It was four o clock in the morning

With fur stuck in my mouth

I heard someone snoring

It was my cat, not on the couch

 

I try to move the cat away

But she meows every time

And sticks her claws into my skin

Don’t you know that this essay

Is my future?

 

And then my cat walks on my laptop

And starts typing her own mess

She makes it all in caps now

And licks the screen again

 

Thank god i have a backup

My cat hits the delete

Why do you need love right now

When I have a paper to complete!

 

Her feet press a key

And I tell her to shoo

This is the dreaded blue screen of death

My future’s fault is on you!
