Cats Belong In Copenhagen - Poem by A.j. Binash

Innocence relinquished
An Alley-Cat
Of their burden
To remain sober.

During mid-day
One heard them sing
Newspaper headlines.

Near the yellow taxis
And Post Office.

The Alley-Cat
Was paid a quarter
For each note
Sung on key.

With the quarters
They purchased whiskey.

That dripped from their whiskers
Into a pothole
Next to a sewer grate.

The Fat-Cats
Walked past.
Whispered pity
Under their breath.

But the Alley-Cat

A drunken minstrel!
High off their innocence.

So the quarters kept coming
Along with the pity.
