and we're not budging!!
COUNT: 14 lines

New Prompt:
Write a story or poem about going on strike - either real people against fictional characters, or the fictional characters against real people. (I'm sure your stories will be more appreciated if you can work in Edward, Bella, and Hello Kitty for a bonus from me.) Remember your line and word counts.


Oh, we are on strike now!
All six of us, and how!
'They've bought cheap food for us;
all we can do is FUSS!
You'd think we'd be cherished--
all we can do is wish!
It's that cheap food again--
they said they'd learn, but when?
We're hungry and not nice--
too weak to catch the mice!
Now, we're on strike; we should
make them feed us what's good!
MISS KITTY eats good stuff--
and we've now had enough!
