Those Intricate Pastel Patterns

by KJ Hannah Greenberg

Those intricate pastel patterns,
Swirls, spots, other markings,
Resemble best select rodent-friendly
Moments, when cats get thwarted.
Small measures of violence,
That fill webs dangling succulent
Prey formed from clerks, clerics,
Pedestrian sorts, often portend death.
Academic know-how remains
Impotent against crisply cool
Insurgents bent upon children
Suffering via “good” truncheons.
Other armaments, tools, devices
Fail to kill, leave footprints.
Such payoff, compromised, brings
Lethal, but innovative slayings
