The Cat

The little beast Had the same routine, day in and day out Until one day, two bigger beasts made to the cat, a plea Teach us how to live, show us the route The cat, determined to do good Taught the Lion and the Tiger How to hunt and how to sprint How to sleep and how to eat How to love and how to mate It took a while, much was explained They all sat down and took a deep breath We did it fellas, I taught you everything you need Oh but the tables turned As soon as the Cat said these words The Lion and the Tiger gave each other the signal They pounced on the cat and chased him through the woods The cat was well prepared Never trust completely, his mom would say He ran and ran The bigger beasts chased along The cat leaped and climbed atop a tree The Lion and the Tiger were confused as could be The cat never taught them how to climb Who betrayed whom, who committed the crime? 28 June 2021 Surprise Me Poetry Contest Sponsored by: charles messina

Who betrayed whom, who committed the crime? The moral of the story is clear. Beautiful write, Shreya.

I too feel the moral is quite clear. Who do you think committed the crime?
