Feline Alright

by Stephen Gold

“Beloved pet cat Choupette, now 11, was made a supermodel by Karl Lagerfeld”
Daily Mail

Although her Karl’s departed
(A catastrophic loss),
Choupette still struts the catwalk
With undiminished gloss.

Which proves, though fate is random,
That when all’s said and done,
Nine lives are categorically
Superior to one.
