Lessons of a Push Puppet Paddle Toy

orange cat
brown base
yellow triggers to either side
it stands there
stiff, plastic, proud
on black paws
in its green bowtie
on the back of its head
“British Des. Rgn.
No. 96670”
under its feet
“British Patent
No. 1437654
Made in Hong Kong”
the feline with Asiatic eyes
red tongue protruded
between white cheeks
press the switch in
on its right
kitty bows its head
supplicated before master
pump the trigger
on its left
wag goes the tail
pussy pretty pleased
but give it pressure
pushed in from both sides
squeezed in desperate hopelessness
see the animal collapse
