The Mousecatchers’ Ball

Alas, the artist is as elusive as the cats…

The Mousecatchers’ Ball

Cats are loners, except for their staff,
But they stay away from other kitties –
Except at night, when the Moon is half,
And they gather into cat committees –
Sometimes to fight, or sometimes to sing,
And sometimes to love when the night is fair –
Settling business, ignoring the king,
With tails and noses up in the air.
Perhaps such a feline encounter hardens,
Makes up for their lives as soft as their fur.
Then once they’re done, it’s back to their gardens,
With time to sleep and time to purr.
