Two Prince Cats

Two Prince Cats
by Dylan Williamson

There was a kingdom
That had two princes
The princes were highly sought for
So they brought a challenge
For their courters to go through
Both turned into slinking cats
That could run and hide
Easily enough from anyone
That meant them harm
Both wore a necklace
That sparkled with its gems
The challenge was to
Gain the cats’ trust
Enough to get the necklace
From around their necks
Many tried, many failed
Until come two people
Who used different methods
To gain the cats’ trust
One used kindness, caring,
Thoughtfulness, and stayed
With the cat even if it
Did not feel comfortable
They stayed with the cat
To help it feel better
And less anxious and uncomfortable
By singing and soothing the cat
Any way that they could
Another used persistence
And passion, staying
Even when unwanted
And staying when
The cat felt too close
And felt the emotions were too much
To handle and felt overwhelmed
They stayed and got close
To the cat, gaining its trust
And helped the cat feel
And let emotions flourish
Both suitors gained the cats’
Trust enough to get the necklaces
Both princes come back
To being human so they
Could be with the two
That completed the challenged
And won their hearts
Love was won out
Using kindness, caring,
And understanding;
And compassion,
Persistence, and passion
