Black Cats by Patricia La Barbera

Black Cats
by Patricia La Barbera

Don't ever think it's a mistake
that when we cross your path, you quake.

You see, we've quite a history
and cultivated mystery.

We think that it's quite suitable
for us to be inscrutable.

We also know that our eyes glow
much more than say, a calico.

But it would not be adventitious
if people thought that we were vicious,

so we have learned to hide our claws
successfully in velvet paws.
