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
