B: Xxxxxxxxxiiii: Cat And Mouse - Poem by Douglas Scotney

One poetic mouse
addressed his cat,
'My brazen slave,
prance nude in exquisite fur,
embrace your lover
in arms and legs and thighs
until he grows loud and soft
and dies.'

One cinematic mouse
adapted this scene for the screen,
used humans in the cast,
and doing without the killing,
made what was seen as obscene.
