Nights Passage

A hole in the darkness Perfectly still Coiled and waiting Ready to kill Silent black velvet Watchful and scary Spots its next victim Passing unwary A leap and a pounce Claws and fangs flashing No chance for the victim There comes a cruel slashing A meal for just one Not for the other Its short life is done There’ll be no tomorrow But the beast will continue Its wicked desire To hunt and cause murder As nature requires A gruesome ritual Carried out every night The only defense Is mornings new light Sun slowly rising Continuing its passage Soft light devours The monsters advantage Some creatures survived Were they just lucky? Best scurry back To their safe little cubby And for the assassin There starts a new day To find a warm sunbeam Dismissing foul play As its green eyes grow heavy And sleep pulls it under The little black kitty Dreams of its plunder
