Limericks for My Kitty Blanket
Children's need for security
goes beyond parental purity
monsters under their bed
scary stories once said
an object to provide surety.
Something to hold while they suck their thumbs
a blanket or toy to fight the glums
my daughter her blanky
to calm her when cranky
furry soft peaceful pastel that numbs.
For me a kitty blanket at foot
of my bed nicely folded and put
there to warm my cold feet
comfort for me to greet
comfortable memories are a foot.
At night through the darkness of my rooms
when I feel considerable glooms
always a friendly purr
and dreams of soft cat fur
midnight cats to fight evil that looms.
