Son of a Cat

Son of a Cat

By Michele Habel-Coffey

 

You want some big words?

Well, I’ve got some for you.

Misogynist

Sadist

And Chauvinist too.

 

What? Those are common?

Not nearly inspired?

Narcissist

Egoist

Do pardon me, sire,

 

If you’re still not impressed

By my lexical coins

Oh miser,

Despiser,

One who purloins!

 

Oedipus Rex,

Do you not see?

Mama’s boy

Pride and joy

I’m not for thee.

 

Move on to the next

And the next after that

Philandering

Polyamorous

Son of a cat.

 

Just don’t linger here

Wasting my time

Get thee gone

Pantheon

Midnight doth chime.
