A wild wind in the palm,
the chimes are going crazy.
Acorns spray the deck
like a round of fire,
the long acorns of scrub oaks,
We had a cat who loved to bat
them across the floor,
but he left home years ago.
Lured away by an evil woman
who put out milk.
Milk is bad for cats,
every one knows that.
She gave him a stupid name,
all the while acting sweet
and superior,
the world is lousy with people
like that.
