Poetry: Kill My Kitties

I wake in the morning, there’s poop all around
I put up the Christmas tree, they knock it down
Kill my kitties, kill my kitties

They throw up on the floor after their fed,
I try to walk by them, they scratch up my leg
Kill my kitties, kill my kitties

In the middle of the night they sleep on my throat
I see evidence in clawing on my favorite coat
Cat litter everywhere
It reeks of their piss
My girlfriend gets purring
But me, I get a hiss

They must know its coming
They try to be my friend
But I bet they are plotting
On how to do me in

But I won’t let it happen
I’m much too slick for that
To be murdered in my own home
By two plotting cats

In the middle of the night I plan to creep
Up on the critters as they slumber in sleep
Kill my kitties, kill my kitties

With the plot devised, all is set
I’ll slip my hands around their little necks
My girl will be mad but what the heck
Kill my kitties, kill my kitties

C-I-L my kitties.

- by James Manning

This poem is inspired by Eddie Murphy’s “Kill My Landlord”

Dark and lonely on a summer's night.
Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
Watchdog barking. Do he bite?
Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
Slip in his window. Break his neck.
Then his house I start to wreck.
Got no reason. What the heck?
Kill my landlord. Kill my landlord.
C-I-L my land lord!

    One of my cats SHIT IN MY BED the other night. I was ready to do some punting, but I scruffed him, stuck his nose right in it and said "NO! BAD KITTY!" so he knew exactly why I was upset. I hope it worked.

    Their names are Logan and Rogue, but their new nicknames are Poopie and Trouble, respectively.

    Okay, so this was good. My husband would enjoy it since he hates cats. My dad hated cats and then my husband so I never had a prayer of owning a cat.

    I actually accidentally ran over 2 fighting cats one time. It was somewhat traumatic. Everyone jokes about running over cats but when it actually happens it is not as funny.

    Also, I think Eddie Murphy is great. I loved Beverly Hills Cop 1 & 2.

    And I responded to your comments to grey ghost on yesterday's post. I agree with you on the UN and the money getting directly to the people.

    this is hilarious. even though i like cats and all. i mean, they're delicious. especially slow-cooked and slathered with barbeque sauce.
  5. James Manning Says:
    LOL @ Dan, mny you are funny.

    Robo, that is truly a capitol offense.

    LMC, I would feel bad if I killed a cat. I'm no tree hugger, but I don't like the idea of killing an animal unless it swims and is willing to grab a hook with a nightcrawler on it.

    Excuse me People, but these are my cats.

    James, James, James. Cats are organized, you know. I have a message from Kitty Corleone, a.k.a. "Fat Tony." He says he and his associates are watching you. Mr. Corleone also asked me to make an introduction by sending you his photograph. Be careful, my brotha.

    Jaimie, I wanted to come here to show you some respect.

    Sorry Jamie but that was stinking hillarious. Although I would never condone the killing of kitties. I still laughed and thought about how mad my BF was when one of our puppies chewed up the trim on our patio door.
  11. Jaimie Says:
    Love the pic DCS! He does look like one mean kitty!

    This is hillarious, and simply begs to be put to music.

    You know,

    "Woke up this morning"
    (bass) bum um de bum
    "There's poop all around"
    (bass) bum um de bum...

    Something sorta Mississippi delta bluesy.

    "Kill the Kitties" # 19 with a bullet on the charts!

  15. Revka Says:
    That was great. I hate cats. they annoy me. I am allergic to them, yet they always rub up around me. Drives me nuts. One time I was standing up, the next thing i knew this kitten ran up my leg and was standing on my thigh, reared back hissing at me. It freaked me out. The kitty from hell crawled up my leg ready to attack me. I screamed and pushed it off my leg.

    I HATE cats..

    You gotta go with Curtis Mayfield on guitar because he can double as a vocalist and is one of the best song writers ever-- c'mon he wrote "Giving him something he could feel" - that man wrote one of the sexiest woman love songs there is as well as hundreds of favorites. Teddy P. didn't even get a tryout?
