the kitten
saved from the rubble
went on to lead a full
and useful life
sleeping on the sofa
(most of the time)
catching rodents
(now and again)
mainly because
it kept shtum
and never told its new owners
where it came from
and that when the shelling started
it had somehow got lost
and found itself
behind enemy lines
it was an easy stunt to pull off as
moloko (milk) is the same
in both languages and
it being a clever cat
it quickly realised
kit meant kot
hardly a difference
worth fighting over
