Explaining to Hunter Cat

High winds whipping strong old trees
Raindrops hammering dried leaves
Pushing through the creaky house
Catching the tail’s lost grey mouse

Plaintiff mewling grows to wails
Shaking loose more rusted nails
Claws tracking the door’s wood frame
Surely humans are to blame

Explaining to hunter cat
That you won’t be coming back
Your protective loving care
Lost in hallways to nowhere
