Whence Came I? Whither do I Go?

To the existential queries of the giant pink
cat: “Whence came I?” “Whither do I go?”
the lady with the multi-colored hair replied
“Good lord, cat, I don’t know.”

Delighted with their unexpected aptitude
for witty talk and philosophic chat, they sat
and sweetly gawked at each other –
when push came to shove, they fell in love.

And what are we to make of that?
Suspend disbelief in the Giant Pink Cat,
imagine all the colors in the lady’s hair,
and wonder if she dyed it on a dare.
