Billionaires and Cats

by Bruce Bennett

“Nearly four months into Elon Musk’s ownership of Twitter,
one of the most influential social media websites has been
transformed into a mercurial billionaire’s personal sandbox.”
The Washington Post

Wait. What’s this? Musk’s use of Twitter
makes one think of kitty litter?

Billionaires, like cats, will play
in a most peculiar way?

Let them. We can wait them out.
When they tire of that, no doubt,

They’ll return, with verve and zest,
to cruel acts that they love best.
