PEACE

PEACE

Kitten,kitten calmly cleaning,

Digging fleas and mites a gleaning,

Pausing briEfly thoU to study

Eyes of fire so deep anD muddy.

Ears a perking, whiskers tweeking,

yawn and purr,and now your're sleeping.

Unconserned o Kitten thou,

Distainful you, your soft meow:

Demanding milk to fill your bowl,

Scorning us our migthy role

As master, when you know inside

Its you who takes us for the ride.

Thou to show us all the meaning.

If I'd to live again I'd vow,

To come back here, a cat , like thou.
