Cat and Mouse

Cat and Mouse

The chase

His body strong and taunt,

He's stalking, on the prowl.

Running through the allies,

Hunting for a mouse.

She is tiny, brown and sweet,

She knows she is the prey.

The game is hide and seek,

A game she likes to play.

It's been going on for nights,

This little game they play,

She pretends to run in fright,

From this street running stray.

By now he knows her scent,

His hunger drives him through the streets.

He can feel her presence,

Just close enough to tease.

Moving closer in the dark,

With the moon their only light,

The chase became a dance 

Between shadows in the night.

One night the little mouse steps out,

Her tiny eyes stared into his,

"Do you plan to take me prisoner,

Or just eat me like cheese whiz?"

This was quite irregular,

The cat, he was perplexed.

He was so very hungry,

But her boldness had him vexed.

She stepped a little closer,

Her little nose sniffed his fur.

She rubbed her nose in deeper,

And listened to him purr.

"Little mouse, I meant to kill you,

I've been hunting you for weeks,

I'm famished, yes it's true

And I know you'd taste so sweet"

So, she proposed a deal, 

He listened very closely,

"Every night I'll let you catch me,

And then, let you lick me very slowly."

And so that it how it went,

With the predator and prey.

She would run from him in fright,

And behind her he would chase.

Then before the sun came up,

She would run up on him quick,

They would roll around and laugh,

Then with a hungry tongue, her body he would lick.
