Mimi-Mona Poetry: Crazy Doth Protest too Much, Methinks!

Dead frogs on the porch.
It can mean only one thing—
predator has met predator.
C'est what?
Crazy, my cat, was
on the prowl again?
Typically, it is only
dead birds through the cat door;
Crazy gets her Twitterer.
Now, it's a plague of frogs?
See how she walks by them?
Snubs them? Her nose in the air?
Yes, it can mean only one thing.
Crazy doth protest too much, methinks!

(Using the original meaning of "Protest" as used in Hamlet (to vow or declare solemnly) or the current meaning (to deny), Mimi lets you wonder (as the narrator smiles slyly) — was it the cat...or not?)
