our little cat

our little cat
she seems quite concerned
about the intentions
of creatures nearby

her heart is inclined
to trust and to love
and yet she has learned
to cast a shrewd eye

our older cat
is cranky and mean
she’ll swipe at you sharply
if you’re passing by

so our little cat
through scratches she’s earned
has grown rather wary
of creatures nearby
