Happy Halloween – Satan’s Cat

It’s Halloween! I’m not a great one for scary ghouls and ghosts banging on my door and asking for sweets, but I saw the cat flap below in the town of Lincoln, England, and it got me thinking.

Satan’s Cat

Satan’s cat

stalks the bowl

knowing that

to get her supper,

means collecting her angel wings

and halo.



from her killing spree,

moist brown canned food

greets her

nihilistic purr.



the past,

of unwanted,


bloodied gifts

at the doorstep

of the strictest mistress,

she dives into dinner,

then struts to

the litter tray.



she wretches,

but with wings clipped

by reliance and

her own good intentions,

she settles to

poor contentment.
