A Kitten's Story - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay
Hurrying to my work in the untimely shower
Caught my ears the mews but it was rush hour
Must be another kitten born with no luck
Abandoned in the shrub growing on sidewalk!
The day soon rubbed off the mews from my mind
Till my feet trudged home leaving the drudge behind
Once upon that sidewalk in twilight's grayish hues
I heard it from neath of grass pain's plaintive mews!
Must be an angel possessed me I did find it out
Picked up took home put warm milk into its mouth
My lady unpleased said our hands are already full
Here you bring another like you isn't another fool!
But she was the first one to make it a cosy bed
She was the one worrying how it to be properly fed
Yet filled the air its agony's mews all day and night
She said your taking it here wasn't all that right!
Its ma must have left the baby in the bush safely hiding
Picking up and taking it home was quite a wrong thing
She must be now crying wild searching everywhere
The baby wouldn't stop crying till getting back mother!
So the cute kitten I placed back in the hideout on sidewalk
With the prayer it gets back ma wishing it good luck
Leaving it with heavy heart I walked away for day's work
Sighed the silent sidewalk on my way home after dark!
