My Cat Tries To Be My Nurse ~ a short poem by Katrina Curtiss 7/28/2020

I knew better than to do what I had done
Never use a knife to open a gift from anyone
But I was in a hurry and acting quite dumb
And suddenly, I had almost cut off my thumb

Basura cat saw blood and off she ran
Bringing me back a towel and a big rubber band
“Hurry!” she cried, “Wrap it up really tight!”
But with all the bleeding my head felt so light

We lay on the floor, just my cat and me
Every time I sat up, I felt so very dizzy
“Lay back down, put your feet over your head!”
My silly cat was trying to drag me to bed.

The bleeding finally stopped and I got up off the floor
Basura looked worry, wondering if she could do more
“I’m okay,” I said to her as we sat down to write
She then laid her head on my hand for the rest of the night.

Today’s Musing: “Next time use the scissors” ~ Quote by Basura, owner of me #girlwithguitar
(My thumb is fine, just can’t play the guitar right now, a friend said, “Oh, you hurt your money maker”)
