The Snow Cat

I was waiting for him, with the proverbial bated breath

And he unsuspectingly kept moving towards almost certain death

My claws were unsheathed, and sharpened to a point

So near, and he still didn’t see me, like he’d just smoked a joint



Like all humans, he too was filled with arrogance and pride

Qualities that we supreme predators learn early to deride

I will eat his large, juicy tummy first, I quickly made up my mind

And only then will I start chewing on his more than ample behind



He kept walking towards me, and now stood at just the right spot

I was ready to pounce and strike while the iron was hot

But suddenly, I froze in raw fear, and then started running helter skelter to avoid detection

When I saw that the damned Indian tourist had got along a polar bear for his protection








About anuragbakhshi

At the age of 40, I decided to exit the corporate world, and enter the world of stories as a full-time writer. Wish me luck!
