Jordan Shoots Cat

Jordan Shoots Cat

By David Smith November 2, 2005

 

He shot the cat.

His toy gun taken away;

Tears run down his cheeks that day.

His gun out of reach;

For two weeks or more.

The pain unbearable

What was it for?

 

He shot the cat.

There was no scream or whine;

That big house cat moved just fine.

And an eight year old boy suffered.

For not following the rule;

The cat in no pain.

The incident not cruel.

That could spark a violent behavior;

A little boy crying;

What was the wager?

 

He shot the cat.

The dart gun was lame.

The principle of obedience;

Child behavior we blame.

  1. Dear Grandpa,
    It’s Mikayla and I’d just been itching to read that poem. From reading it, it made me wish that i had remember my brother shooting the cat, it sound terribly funny. By the way i love the website and I promise to look at it more often for updates.
    Lots of love,
    Mikayla
