He doesn’t care,
Be it night or day,
Inside he stubbornly stay,
Leaving black and white marks in his way,
Making commotion not just in the hallway,
Scouring relentlessly for prey,
Left his tail to run away,
Yet today, was his unlucky day,
I killed that troublesome house gecko, yay.


#NaPoWriMo2019 Day 23: write a poem about an animal. If you’d like to take a look at some other poems for inspiration, you might like James Dickey’s “The Dusk of Horses,” or Tennyson’s “The Eagle.”
