The Cats - Poem by David Aoloch Bion

The cat is the cat is the cat is the cheetah is
The tiger is the leopard is the panther is
The jaguar is the jackal in our East forest
The eye is glowing
The eyes are glowing
The dozen of eyes are glowing
The synthesis of glowing eyes from
The cats light up East Forest at night

The sweetness of fruits in East Forest
The fruits are sweet
The cheetah, the Grace of Forest eats fruits
The savouryness of preys
The preys are savoury
The cheetah, the King of Speed eats preys

The cheetah jumps from tree to tree at glow
The echoes of speedy jump woke up antelope
The cheetah caught antelope gently
The cheetah didn’t punch antelope because
The cheetah jumped over antelope foe sport
The cheetah let loosen antelope
The other cats sat on hind legs and clapped
Their forelegs
The antelope ran, ran, ran and disappeared
The cheetah sped up and caught antelope again
The cheetah let loosen antelope again
The antelope ran, ran, ran and disappeared
The cheetah caught antelope many times….
The antelope ran many times ……
The cheetah let loosen antelope many times..
The cheetah played with antelope for
The hour and half while other cats watch
Them,
The game ended when antelope died of stulifying
