How It All Began

by J. Bersee

When the earth was catless
There was solely darkness.

Beginning of Life ho-hum, sheer
Glory of cats, still to come.

The Creator struggled with an ill-disposed
Mankind, their chasing apples, plums -

The crazy wiring and utter despair,
The young ones climbing trees.

Then brought forth His masterpiece,
His Four Seasons, ‘Cats’ their name.

Stars and planets spun with envy,
Senselessness, saturnine,

So far from that glory filled day,
The universe a bit pale,

Aware of wooly cats thriving,
Born in happy multitudes.

And the earth became
Soft and purry.

Mankind wept of joy, there was
love, and soon catfood o’erflowed

In the flavours of creatures,
Fish, beef, poultry and lamb.

The pyramids were built
To carry their eternal snooze,

A single human added
To compare better to good.

Now I say unto you, forsooth,
Accept your humble part in life.

We are only human after all.
No short cuts to become wise.

So take a brush and rise.
Be brave and stand tall!

Before it heaves over all.
