Typo confuses, poet amuses, with rhyme of her own

How Many Kittens?
By Beverly Redmon
Of the five little kittens
Who have their mittens,
I am a bit confused.
Because under the ad
It says there are three kinds
And of each color there are two.

In adding them up,
I seem to come up
With 6 little kittens in all.
So does she have 5 or does she have 6?
I thought maybe one took a fall.

I do not need any kittens right now.
As we have plenty of pets,
But I'll keep my ears open and let you know,
Of anyone needing a kitten from a poet.

- Beverly Redmon
