10 Kittens - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

Ten kittens in my home now
Ten little brats
Their mothers never knew how
To catch the cupboard rats!
Their mothers never knew how
To go for hunt and prey
How the kittens would learn now
Anything other than play!
Their mothers never knew how
To pounce on a mouse
The poor kittens are all now
Just idling in my house!
Their mothers never knew how
To make their own food
Why still the lazy kittens now
Making me feel so good?

    I enjoyed this light, humorous verse. Nice how you shared your feelings about the fact that you just can't help but love these little lazy kittens, who are just like their mom. Very good write about human nature. (Report) Reply

    The kittens are fortunate to get such a caretaker. May be when everything is available without efforts, they tend to forget their natural talents like hunting etc, . A nice poem. (Report) Reply
