I have a friend (the Countess de Shufe,
If you must know) who was so appalled
At my allowing a hypothetical red kitten
To be sacrificed in a poem that I have decreed
Its rebirth as a leopard of such ferocity
That it will terrorize nine entire provinces
And be placated at last only by a seat --
Non-voting -- on the UN Security Council.
(She wanted him to eat Justin Bieber
But I have, with difficulty, refused her this.)
