Cat & Mouse Games


I am but a mouse,
squealing and squirming through a house.
Running around I hear a scream.
I turn around so I could see.

A big powerful paw,
descends on me like tooth & claws.
I shrill & squirm like a worm.
Scared and hurt, I begin to curl.

Into a ball,
I protect myself from tooth & claw.
Cries of pain, I whail & flail.
“Please, get off me…” but my cries surely fail.

Out of breathe from the attack,
I see a cat looking back.
Crazy is she with hate & fleas,
she walks away with her teeth unclean.
