Word of the Day: Conniption

Days of the past

This word came fast

From my mother

Exclaimed by no other

I’m warning you, you little twit

I’m not putting up with a conniption fit!

Now being a child of two or three

The word was always a puzzle to me

Fit was the only one I knew

Having many cats, we saw a few

But I wondered how that would apply to me

I never convulsed like the cats I had seen

Nevertheless, my mother was stern

Having a conniption a spanking would earn

I still don’t know what she meant

But treaded softly, nothing errant

Still didn’t know what caused the cats

To have conniptions, maybe rats?
