The Cat Who Tried To File For Unemployment ~ a short poem by Katrina Curtiss 4/20/2020

My cat would not give me my phone
“I’m using it,” she said, “now leave me alone
I want to do what you do for enjoyment
Spend all my time trying to file for unemployment.”

She meowed, “Why is this taking so long?
The numbers always busy am I doing something wrong?
You can’t file on line, it won’t accept you’re self employed?
Not one minute, not one day of this, I’ve enjoyed!”

I replied, “It won’t let me put my info in right
believe me, I’ve tried both day and both night
The number is busy, over and over again”
Oh, when will this madness ever end?

Basura asked, “Do we have enough for another day?”
I laughed and said, “Yes my cat, we’re really okay
We got our Stimulus check, you remember that”
she said, ”Of course, I’m a clever cat!”

So together we sat, dialing, trying to get through
Basura said, “I know what we can do!
Let’s call the Guy in the White House and tell him our mess
Maybe he’ll be nicer to us than he is to the press.”
