M.D Dinesh Nair (Thrissur/Vijayawada)
A CAT AND RAT GAME
In the world of many beautiful living beings we like to live
Observing the sky and looking curiously at the rare visitors
A squirrel, a sparrow, a parrot and a dragon fly.
All of a sudden we can see a rat that runs for its life
As a cat is after it chasing without a stopping for a breath and
We call it a game though it is a battle for a life and making a living.
Before our eyes the rat appears to flee for ever
And the cat retreats and settles with a small reptile at times.
We may give a sigh of relief though the poor reptile is gone!
A question has to haunt us often as why we still have a cat
That will one day surely kill these rats plenty
And where shall we hide our minds akin to aliens disfigured?
