(a note from the cats!)
WDC WRITERS CRAMP 022711 for 022811

Today’s story or poem must address the issue of why or why not people need to learn a second (or more) language (s). You characters could have a conversation about it, or one of them could demonstrate the advantages.

(a note from the cats!)

Cats’ lives would be much easier
if you could talk to us!.
We know you wouldn’t like it
but we could learn to cuss

just like you do each time you spill
hot coffee from your mug--
you spill each day; it makes you ill
and splashes on the rug!

We know you’re not too old to learn,
And that you play with speech!
Learning to speak OUR language
Would make us fun to teach!

Your talking would help discipline;
we wouldn’t still pretend
that we still have to cheat to win!
Our silly games would end!
