Some cruel character throws a
kitten sack 
of bones 
in a canal 
no survival concern.
A kinder soul scoops up 
limp bit of life, 
carries to a vet
dedicated staff feed 
tiny amounts 
drip by drip.
Twice this bantam body 
succumbs to malnourishment
and dies. 
Revived by skilled efforts.
Chance for survival slim 
naming it 'Maybe'.
of tiny parts 
held together by 
the least amount of flesh 
it can wear
and live. 
Green bead eyes shine
beseeching me.  
I succumb by adopting.
