I just made this poem up while responding to an opponent in a debate. He shared a poem about his cat - so obviously I had to write a better poem. Thought I'd share.

Enjoy :)

** A poem dedicated to my cat Guadalupei 'Midnight Star' Escobar **

As the clock strikes midnight, I notice her paws tremble
quick jolts of motion, leaving a faint sound as her claw catches cloth
is she having a dream?
A perfect being, soothing is her low hum as she purrs to unknown images
her teeth clicking slightly as she nibbles on the warm summer air
her smooth black coat shimmers with luminance under the tempered light
full-moon tonight, perhaps in her dream she is a wild beast
still clawing the surrounding oak wood trees, marking her place in the jungle
or perhaps she is pawing the sand, as she sits at the edge of a stream
a stream of consciousness,
fleeting thoughts, she jumps suddenly as if stirred by a fierce wind
her eyelids open quick;y, pupils large - yet slanted
unlike any other mammal, her eyes are that of a lizard
yet the warmth of my hand quickly assures her
everything is as it should be
the scent of my skin is acutely noticed, she sniffs with intent
accepting, she nudges her face against my lap
conforming to my curves, she catches my eye and meows
a low, yet quick hello, acknowledging her fellow beast
and just as sudden as she rose, she fell back into slumber
the clocks strikes half past midnight,
I wonder... is she having a dream? Deputy Vote Moderator

This is beautiful :)
Kudos to anyone who knows these quotes :P
'Headline?' he asked.
'Swing Set Needs Home,' I said.
'Desperately Lonely Swing Set Needs Loving Home,' he said.
'Lonely, Vaguely Pedophilic Swing Set Seeks the Butts of Children,' I said.
