Cat Among The Chickens

Rating: 3.9

Through ocean of feathers,
The murder would be soundless,
Not even a squark,
As the paw smashed through the air,
And landed in the back of the prey,
And soundless it fell to the ground,
And was dragged from the pens,
By the serial mass murder,

The cat among the chickens!

Murderers are always sneaky, silent and self motivated. Wonderfully presented poem. Enjoyed

That cat had to have drugged those chickens first! ! ! The neighbor's chickens squawk in panic when a sparrow lights on the fence.

Impressive poem! Somehow, cannot escape metaphorical meaning, though people's cats may not be easy recognizable.

Well penned.. I could clearly visualize the silent furry murderer, soundlessly landing on the prey and dragging the hen from pen.. but I do love Cats, they are quite charismatic.. thanks for sharing

Nick, Greetings from Bombay. I am glad that you liked my poem on the Sattal Lake. I very much value your comments, particularly after I read two of your poems for first time (The Saddest Chicken and 2 Chickens) and this one. I am very happy that I have discovered you on poemhunter. In the next few days, I will look forward to reading and enjoying ALL your poems. You are an excellent poet and have a tremendous sense of humour. Best regards.- Prakash Yardi from Bombay
