NaPoWriMo new theme, for day now thirteen,
A riddling poem, and this sets the scene:
Five syllables which, when all placed in a row,
A definite answer will then clearly show
The first is a creature you may like to pet,
The second a vowel-sound quite easy to get,
The next two you hear as the typical spot
Which plenty of bloodshed and carnage has got;
The final reminds you what has, there, been done
With some deadly weapon like knife, axe, or gun …
Give up? Then the answer – reversed front and back –
Would come out as reading lacirogetac,
Arrived at by taking, if you’re confused still,
With ‘definite’ meaning … Cat E Gory Kill!
