Cat Fights - Poem by Benjamin Chiu Uy

Cat Fights

You ride with the wind and a car,
Follow your thoughts throught the winding roads,

Between sceneries of the calm country sides and the painfull decisions in questions,

Have you been heavy handed with Barombado this bully tomcat who chased Brown, the recluse, the timid one, out of the house, for a stake as king of their animal territories?


My wide 79 sq, ft living room with sofa couch on either side of the wall,
Too large or limited, for their claims forownership of my peacefull house,

You half expect them to be humans,
To be fighting for their thrones,

Disgusted, after Brown was chased out of my house, i chasedBarambado, the other cat with a heavy broom and locked my living rooms and house,

Discourage with their animal fights and loud bickerings for a territory,
I disowned them both,

Large enought for a dozen more cats to be housed together,
In one roofat peace with each other.

Someday i may find some pairs of strays, some breeds capable of living together and feasts on my half sackfull of Whiskies cat food,

Left overs as it happened with the previous strays, but without their claims for a territory and loud growlings, meous and cat fights.
