IN PRAISE OF BLACK CATS
In this selfie world of the self-obsessed
Black cats are classed as badly dressed
Black cats are very polite
And only speak when they are spoken to
Black cats sometimes lick your nose at first light
And look pleased when they have awoken you
Black cats smile all the time
Black cats never whinge or whine
The colour of their fur does not define them
Any more than my skin colour defines me or mine
This is colour prejudice under a different name
So black moggies of the world unite.
You don’t have to take this ‘selfie’ shite.
