Accidental death is what they’ve ruled
She said they were being fooled
Victim was bejeweled
Perp had tools

A little kitten began to mewl
followed them around the pool
Victim was bejeweled
Perp had tools

In kitten’s paw behold, minuscule
diamond earring, search the school
Victim was bejeweled
Perp had tools

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
