Good Morning Kitty

Itty Bitty Kitty

jumps up on the bed.

Itty Bitty Kitty

sits upon my head.

Her silky black fur

tickles in my ear

and her purring, purring, purring

is all that I can hear.

I see shiny green jewels

sparkling back at me.

The love-love in her eye-eyes

says she belongs to me.

Now she's playing with my pencil

as I try to write this rhyme.

She watches and she waits

then attacks it just in time.

She got up to have breakfast

and left some drops of blood.

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness,

what has Itty Bitty done?!

I kicked my covers down

and stepped off of the bed.

Crunch, crunch, crunch.

I squashed a mouse's little head.

Itty Bitty Kitty,

you look at me with pride.

But I'd appreciate it

if you left your gifts outside.
