Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
A Black cat with certain disability
Its one leg was broken some how
Made friendship with my home and surroundings
Slowly became friends with all members.
Black cat with disabled leg
Liked its dishes of fish curry and rice
Waited outside of the kitchen
Perfect discipline and peculiar sounds.
Black cat with its three legs
somehow caught hold of a mouse
Bought it to show us its prey
As if for the admiration on its capability.
Black cat one day became itself a prey
Of a stray dog cruel and cunning
without hesitation, caught in the neck
Ferocious was the dog and killed the cat.
Black cat we loved so much
Gave sympathy and affection so much
As well as food for its sustenance
But its fate was different, death imminent
From the bite of a ferocious stray dog
Mystery of the world is beyond expectation
Anywhere there is danger for a life
Caution in words and deeds somehow
As well as luck will save the life of it.
