Cat With Nine Tails - Poem by Allan James Saywell

There lay a man
Dressed in rags
When the moonlight lit his face
His face became me
Facing him was a Woman
Holding a cat with nine tails
The cat purred
While the woman
Sang a song called pain
The woman lent down
Whispered- be a man
Not a bitch
When a woman offers love
Don't offer her pain

Topic(s) of this poem: love and life
