From the book The Tighty-Whitey Spider

My cat had kittens recently.
Her litter’s awfully cute.
I like to watch them wrestling.
I think it’s such a hoot.

Her litter like to roll around.
They like to scratch and bite.
They kick each other constantly.
It’s fun to watch them fight.

But, even so, I’ll pick them up
and put them all to bed
the minute they start punching
one another in the head.

I’m not concerned her kittens
couldn’t take a couple knocks.
It’s just that I don’t like to watch
her kitty litter box.
