My Kitten Is a Ninja by Kenn Nesbitt

My kitten is a ninja.
He wears a black disguise.
He sneaks up on me stealthily
and takes me by surprise.

I never hear him coming.
He doesn’t make a peep.
He hides, then glides in silently
and makes a flying leap.

I don’t know why he does it.
The reason isn’t clear.
He simply likes to tackle me
then swiftly disappear.

I wish that he was normal
and didn’t act like that.
My life would be so different if
I had an average cat.

I’d play with him, and pet him,
and treat him gingerly.
Instead, whenever he’s around
I get a ninjury.
