I brought home a kitten

I brought home 
a kitten
for my wife
to cuddle
on the couch
in front of the TV
but it scratched her
on the cheek
and shat in her slipper
which no one noticed

and now
the cat and I 
both need a home

dear god help us
I am so cold
and the asshole cat
ate all of our canned
turkey and gravy 
and hissed at me
for thinking 
he’d share
I am so stupid
