The cat by the corner poem-Lakisha Plummer

The cat by the corner poem-Lakisha Plummer

The cat by the corner was born in a castle

Poise,wealth,calmness and grace
A bundle of joy didn't have to move a muscle
You could play with her or pull her to an embrace.

The cat by the corner started to grow Her flaws began to hover and her scars began to show Pet to the queen who later died The son thought it would be best to throw out the cat and introduce it to the other side The cat by the corner found a place to eat Next to the bar where the greedy people meet They drink their beers and throw their food Because what they have is nothing compared to the money they grab from the poor and the good. The cat by the corner has a scar to remember From the day the alley cats attacked last December Scratched her eye so she’d have only one to see And day by day she would try to plea Because life only got worse Time and time again She closed all her doors Yet she sat in the rain The cat by the corner started to give To the lies, to the beatings, to the crimes, to the fight To the uncooked food that didn’t smell right To the Rejection from many no matter how many times she purred While all she wanted was for you to rub her fur The cat by the corner now sits at the corner I guess you saw her life in a microscope You would try to help but you would just ignore her Because the way you treated her made her loose hope
