Here kitty kitty

rather i were a drunkard
or a junkie
than poor in spirit
with lack of laughter
or reason
to live each day
while another storm of woe
floods up and over
my dam of hope
a near drowned cat
in an unfamiliar alley
weary and wary
of the sound and shadow
of a scampering
and hungry
rat

editors note:

Tread water and carry a big laugh. Here ratty ratty! – mh
