What My Cat Taught Me About Love

Love me...
            Love me...

Stroke me...
            Stroke me...

Rub my ears...
            Oh, yeah, oh yeah!

Stroke me.

Love me...
            Oh Yeah!

Love me..
            Oh Yeah!

Love me...
            Love me...

Grrrr! Hiss - Meow!
            Leave me alone now.....

Do you remember the names?
Precambrian, Cambrian, Silurian.
The end crunching of time.

Catching up too soon.
Carboniferous, Permian, Triassic.
Can't you feel the breath on your neck?

Like a warrior is in hot pursuit?
Bearing down towards our times:
Jurassic, Cretaceous, Palaeogene.

The storm is nearly here.
Neogene, Pliocene, Pleistocene .
Can the tide be reversed?

Or shall we continue to debate?
Pointing fingers until:

For what shall come after us?
To the destitute and silent oceans.
And poetry which will never be read again.
