a hard won prize must be forfeited!

New Prompt: Start your poem or story with the following:

"Drop it", she said.

I’m letting go, already!
(a hard-won prize must be forfeited!)--24 lines
(by Tipton; now the biggest cat but second-youngest!

“Drop it” she said—
and I knew I was DEAD!!

I caught this small mouse;
it was loose in the house!

I was way too hungry
for a big cat like me.

And there was a campaign
To end the Mousie Reign

that had put us in fear
for ‘most all of this year!!

With the beetles all gone,
daily life’s now a yawn!

There is nothing to chase;
no fun eats to embrace!

So I just had to catch
That poor lost little wretch!

But now I have been caught
and my chase was for naught!

I'll just forfeit my prize;
even I realize;

I must drop, like she said;
and hope that I’m not dead!!
