A Girl Always Knows

That bold hussy bitch.
Right up to my front door, every day,
with her notes for my man.

Today she pays!
Today she--

"Duchess! Down! It's only the mail."
________


for Mama Zen's Words Count feature at Real Toads. Today she wants conflict in 30 words or less.

Your poem (she WAS a bitch!) was hilarious, Shay, and the introduction to the Chenille Sisters was much appreciated.

Thanks for my first morning guffaw.

Only a cat could not be jealous, and you know how *they* are. This was actually pretty twisty for my poor befoozled brain--a lot going on in 30 words, but all of it hilarious.
