Cats

by Samah Akhtar

A cat,
Small, lithe, delicate
The tiny criminal,
Will steal your heart,
She walks with elegance
And is credulous,
Lovable and loyal,
And what could be better?
Than a warm affectionate cat
Purring softly on your lap,
A cat is something graceful
And playful
I love cats

A cat,
Small, dangerous, menacing,
The tiny criminal,
Will steal your food,
Runs with a bolt
And a dash
Selfish and self-centered,
A cat will steal your food
And what could be worse?
Then walking down the stairs,
When a cat runs and pounces,
Growling softly,
A cat is like a small tiger
Intense and aggressive
I hate cats
