I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but I can’t find it, so here it is again (or, appropriately enough, not).
I wrote this many long years ago, back in the days of the BBS (or Bulletin Board System).
SCHRODINGER MEETS DR. SEUSS
by Marian Allen
You put a cat into a box
And then a hat, and then some sox.
Although the cat says, “Stop now! Stop!”
You firmly fasten down the top.
Now, does that cat that’s in that box
Put on the hat or wear the sox?
He might do neither, maybe both.
You couldn’t really take your oath
On whether he’s in sox or hat–
That unobserved but well-dressed (?) cat!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character loses a beloved pet and another character does NOT understand how upsetting it is.
