THREATS AND FRETS

Once,
In a jungle that was fair
…and frowned on carnivores
A dog felt insulted after fighting mouse

II
He kept barking and threatening to deal with mouse
To the hearing of all
Cat, who felt tired of chewing plants
…also heard and schemed a perfect plan

III
Cat caught and ate mouse
One moonless and starless night
…managed to leave few of its bones
…and planted them beside the sleeping dog

IV
It was a weird night
Cock overslept
So decided to go from place to place
Waking the animals closest
As cock was about to crow into dog’s ear
It saw the bones of mouse
So crowed his loudest ever

V
All the animals woke and rushed to dog’s sleeping place
…including cat
They detained dog after realizing mouse was nowhere to be found

VI

The small animals petitioned King Lion
To banish Dog
As he posed a threat to their existence
That was how Dog was banished to serve and guard man
Cat, living in the jungle for long
Until his cup fulled
And banished himself in chase of the mice family
…who sought refuge and safety from their anonymous killers, in human land

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
