Ode To A Cat - Poem by Alexander Shaumyan
Looking inside a cat's eyes I can see
This sham of human world that's lost on me-
Where someone howls that the end is nigh-
While in a cat's eyes I can see the sky,
The mountains, the lakes, the stars, the sea-
Within a cat's eyes I can clearly see
The past, the present and the eternal youth-
Within a cat's eyes radiates the truth
Upon this garbage spewed by zombie minds
That fry like bacon in these changing climes
Of gender iffy nothings, claiming rights,
And whining trolls that feast on mini bites
Of social justice posing as news.
Within a cat's eyes I can see the view
Unvarnished by the chat of noisy bats-
Within a cat's eyes I can see a cat-
A noble creature with a lion's heart.
While all the pretense of postmodern art
And gendered racial narrative recedes-
The world is as it is- there is no need
To sprinkle perfume on somebody's shlong.
Inside cat's ears I can hear a song
Of purring freedom of the whole universe-
Within cat's ears I can hear its verse.
