Park Life

Curly curvy fluffy tail
Dashes round and round the tree
I know cats, and I know rats
But this beast is quite new to me.

Pricked-up ears and button eyes
Meet my look of shocked surprise
Then a second pair appear
I bark and bark and bark with fear.

Written in Memorial Park West Ham during the Summer Together! 2016 August residency.
