“Big Cat” by Mary Serenc

Big Cat

 

With bushy hair and golden eyes

I’m just a kitten in disguise.

 

Though roaring is so much more my style

Which can indeed appear hostile.

 

Whereas a tiny kitten’s purr

Makes people smile and stroke their fur.

 

And of course kittens prance around

Their four paws hardly touch the ground.

 

Occasionally I too like to play

But I mostly  laze throughout the day.

 

Though mice can be a tasty snack

It’s the larger animals that I attack.

 

By night I hunt and stalk my prey

Zebra and antelope for this gourmet.

 

Yes I’m the king of creatures great and small

The fiercest and most powerful of all.

 

But beneath this majestic mane of gold

Beats a kitten’s heart, so sweet and bold.
