Treasure Island

Feline Facility

Cat's claws show supreme capability
in solving those problems mankind
filled with catnip lack, feline facility
proves adept at colours aligned.
Take a lesson from me, versatility
in verse role-reversing mind bind
needs no preening when mental mobility
meets dilemmas blind men find unkind.

Are you not overwhelmed by my logical
puzzle skill pizzaz sure to impress?
Men's perspectives fail! Phantasmagorical,
they seldom know how to express
holistic views true, pseudo biological
ravings leave a cool cat cold. Who'd guess
their tics block, tock unchronological
when seeking right answer's address.

I am not overawed by the prospect
of playing from morning to night,
my motives, moreover, aren't suspect,
although men may have kittens, they might,
realize that cats eyes glow though few of us
take less than twelve turns to solve cube,
but imagine if men had our gene I us
they'd haste to paste trace on who tube.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
