An Afghani Kitten

Finally! It seems some of Mr. A. Cat's limericky vibes may have rubbed off on me (only the typist around here) so the following verse has been sadly inspired by President Obama's recent war escalation announcement:

When bombing an Afghani Kitten
be sure it's a crook you are hittin'
from Houston a drone
toward targets unknown
bad karma returns as is fittin.'

Just to brighten up my depression over America's further turning toward perpetual war which this escalation represents, here's some sedum on a metal table from my garden this past May with pink oxalis blooming in the background...
