Cats on the Roof – by LuRain Penny

 

 Cats come to play

now the dog’s gone away –

taken over his spot

now the old dog is not.

Under moon light lithe and slinky,

through leafy shadow densely inky –

stalking their prey above the place where I lay.

In wee hours kitties pounce and leap

agitating my fitful sleep.

 I jab jab jab cane on ceiling hard enough to send them squealing.

They’ve invaded our yard with nary a fear –

Be no cats on the roof

if our doggie was here.
