Cat on a Limb

Cat on a Limb

A Poem by Dave Brown

corpse calculation


Cat out on a long thin limb

On one of many trees

Hidden nicely from view

Behinda buncha leaves


Hidden from sweet, sweet birds

Who’s only thought is nesting

Is soon to give those little fluffs

Some really nasty testing


Flutter, flutter round and round

Then landing on that limb

Nasty nasty kitty cat

Waiting quiet there for him


A crotch just by Kitty’s claws

In perfect killer Kitty view

Which in her devious mind

Invites dear, fluffy Birdie right onto


Birdie in sweet innocence

Gives his head a little tweak

And then hops his tiny feet

Up that branch, which is kina weak


Overzealous murder, killer cat

Takes a mighty jump

But the weak branch breaks and she

Lands on her bloodthirsty rump

The adventures of Sylvester and Tweety brought to life in verse, I enjoyed this view of the catch as catch can world of kitty TV dinners. Some days the birds are luckier than the cat.
