The Cat in The Alley

The raggedy cats stole the show.
Pussycat Wailers, playing tonight exclusively
At an alleyway near you—
Screeching out hit after hit.
Lyrically hitting the bones of contention.
Windows slam shut in unison.
Screechy cat/screechy cat, we want more.
A moonlight encore by the bins.
Herring Bones and Sour Milk are recurring favorites. A whisker away from sleeping ears.
