I found your note in there. . . .
COUNT: 16

NEW PROMPT:
Speaking of laundry, as you are cleaning out the pockets of your jeans before tossing them into the washer, you discover a crumbled up note that says, "HELP ME PLEASE!" in one of the pockets. Write the story or poem from there, first or third person is fine.

DESPERATION IN THERE WITH THE LINT!

I found a crumpled hidden note --
your desperation in the lint!
I didn't know small cats could write--
my two degrees gave me no hint!

Your note said "oh, please help me, please!"
You feared because you had no food;
Although you lured a mouse with cheese,
you tried to hunt; weren't in the mood.

I now have given you your fish;
you ate but then you begged for more!
You wanted an entire dish
and sent me to the store for more!!

And so, your plea was just a hoax!
You thought you'd make me feel bad
when all you had to do was coax
and act just like a hungry cad!
