The New Kittens

The New Kittens



The energy at home has reached a peak

there needs to be a cure to slow things down

before Father stumbles and busts his crown

an energy these children seem to seek.

With silent paws they creep upon a sill

carefully in the round of flowerpot

where soil has gathered in the same old spot

upon the carpet where the plants stand still.

Instinctually training constantly

desire for perfection in the hunt

sometimes the house plants make the sacrifice.

These new kittens help strengthen family

when outside world is being rather blunt

an order of some playfulness is nice.


Looks upon his fore paw to see if clean

and with the paw he’s chosen start to lick

with fashion and a body politic

a rough shod tongue to scrub his fur to gleen.

Whether on my sofa or on my knee

a quiet purr as they begin to nap

can change as quickly as a sudden snap

and pounce around the world with joyous glee.

For hundreds of years poets took their pens

to share their studies of their pet felines

or carve some heiroglyphic momento.

But today I just sit and feel the cleanse

their frisky agendas written outlines

as energy reaches a crescendo.


With a surprising dignity he walks

always a whisker first and then a claw

such verocity in his little paw

as if to disrespect our little talks.

Sometimes their presence seems above it all

their interest in the bird who sits outside

the need for thrill of hunt to0 satisified

at times they chuckle, they flatten, they crawl.

The cat went here and there as moon spins round

when shadows cover portions of our lives

these cats they gather to help out their friends.

To dance backwards and forwards round and round

not politicians or their perfect wives

furry companionship the kind that mends.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
