"Come quick, come quick", their mother
"The time is near"
She feels that when the kittens
come the children should be here.
She told them that a big orange
Tom took "kitty" as his wife.
"It's Wonderful, a gift from God,
the miracle of life".
At half a year young "Kitty"
feels too painful too scared to appreciate six miracles, blind-eyed
and yellow haired.
But she knows these lives depend
on her and nature tells her how and as she cleans them, children as
"Mom, can we go now?"
But now and then for six
more weeks the children visit her to play with six new magic toys
life and fur.
The six weeks pass, the newness
gone and new home yet unfound,
Mum bundles up six miracles and
takes them to the pound,Where lovingly, with gentle hands and no
tears left to cry, the shelter workers kiss them once and take them
off to die.
And "Momma Kitty" now she's
called mourns her loss and then, she's put outside, and of course,
she's pregnant once again.
Dad tells "Kitty" STOP THIS NOW or
you wont live here long!
But deep inside Momma Cat, this
time something's wrong.
Too young, too small, too
often bred now nature's gone awry, Momma Kitty feels it too and she
crawls off to die.
She too is freed from this cruel
world, and her time of strife.
How Harsh the truth, how high the
price this "Miracle of Life"?
