(Picture) – Honourable Cat

Honourable Cat

I am cat.
I am honourable.
I have pride.
I have dignity.
And I have memory.
For I am older than you.
I am older than your Gods; the Tree Gods, the Stone Gods,
The Thunder and Lightning and the Sun Gods
And your God of Love
I too can love
But with only half a heart
And that I offer you.
Accept what I am able to give
For were I to give you all
I could not bear your inevitable treachery.
Let us remain honourable friends.
(Paul Gallico)
