a cat on the tree

A cat up on a tree.
Watching a dog barking crazy-
Looking up-
At the tree...
The cat laughing 
At the helplessness
On the ground.

The cat up on the tree.
A dog on the ground-
Unable to climb-
The cat a witness.
As the floods
Sweep away the dog.

The cat up on the tree.
Smiling.
As the dog is drown
In the water-then,
Disappearing.

    HOnesty, I know it's not nice, but I am sitting here laughing with the cat. Guess it's the bit of evil in me. The dog getting his comeuppance for messing with the underdog feline! This was unique which makes it COOL.

    Honesty, this says as much about human nature as it does about animal behavior. Awesome poem! Thanks for you comments on my novel. I didn't know you were reading it, but I'm delighted you are enjoying it. There's a bit of a twist at the end. Really appreciate the input. Love, Carolyn
