Interdimensional Mice from Planet Invisible!

A  silly little poem that I’ve decided to retire. May it rest well.

Interdimensional Mice from Planet Invisible!

You dumb ones don’t believe in them,
but I believe.
I am smart and I believe and I know them!

You blind ones don’t see them,
but I see them.
I am bright eyed and I look and I see them!

You big ones can’t track them,
but I track them.
I see them and I track them and I will follow them!

You slow ones can’t chase them,
but I chase them.
I follow them and I chase them and I will catch them!

You weak ones can’t smash them,
but I smash them.
I catch them and I smash them and I destroy them!

You simple ones think they are shadows,
but I know they are invaders.
I chase them into walls and I vanquish them!

You humans think I am crazy,
but I am cat.
I smash shadows and I save you and I am cat!
(end)

Yeah, I know it’s lame, but it got my name into Locus, and that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

  2. Is it weird that I relate to the protaganist in this story? It fills me with warmth knowing that there’s someone out there, even if it’s a cat, shit, better that it’s a cat, who understands me and my mixed-up, so-called life. Claire Danes, take me away.

  4. There was a very charming, if odd sense of duty conveyed there. I feel sudden sense of obligation to my spherical mound of feline.
