Only a kitten

Feel those tiny teeth nibble, those tiny teeth scratch
Is it a duck with teeth? no! It is only a kitten
Are there claws there? oh yeah, so tiny, so small
Hidden in tufts of fur, yeah, they’re always there
Attack! Pounce! Crawl! Leap! Strike!
We all know no harm is meant, kisses come next

Oh, my best beloved, we see you with your tiny teeth
Aching to lash out, to strike and lash, full-throated
Yeah, you yawp with the best of the them, chin jutting
I see the kitten in you, pal, see through the harm
Crash! Smash! Bash! Shout! Troll! Leap!
When you’re done, we’re still here, arms still wide
