FISHERCAT


FISHERCAT

 

Guinea feathers in circles,

Scattered on the ground…

Five or so circles spread out on the lawn

Where somebody really chowed down!

The fisher cat family from “Big Rock”,

I saw them myself recently…

Migrated themselves to our five acres

To catch guinea hens with glee.

Once I saw them at night,

I recognized the family right away…

Didn’t know if they’d bite or threaten me

So made enough noise so they’d go away.

They eventually moved on,

The young cats were big enough…

To survive on their own eating flesh and bone

And spread out knowing life was tough.
