pacing away from the landing of paws
furry feline; a mobile threat,
dictionary's definition of death.
A rodent's life mission
not chosen but given
to bring for the next generation
a better starting point.
in every caste
but its relative happiness?
On a different scale.
The tiring rat race
Will it ever end?
Even if it does,
What reward is at hand?
On the deathbed of hay, the rat rest and stay,
what thoughts will break his piece of mind?
but to know its son's best move isn't to pray,
It may have one last breath and rest in time.
