The mouse scampered across the floor
He was seeking cheese, or something more
His nose twitched, he raised his head up high
But there was no one there, so he breathed a sigh.
Then the cat had him between her paws
And he realised, this time, she’d won
The cat purred and smiled,
The game was finally done.
This poem is the sequel to a short story I wrote for uni. I’ll post the story once it’s marked (I can’t post stuff I’ve written before it’s marked because the plagiarism checker will pick up my blog).
The change in meter from verse 1 to 2 is deliberate.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide how you wish to interpret the poem.
It was a change of scenery for me.
