The Wise Little Cat

Aww, little kitty cat,

Thanks for making me realise,

That it’s important to stop a bit,

And smell the flowers nice.

 

Hoomans are dumb, so very, very dense,

They tend to forget the important stuff,

But as long as we’ve got you around,

Climb the roof, get stuck in trees.

Curl up in the sun, catch a snooze,

And shrug of our cares, just live free!

I mean, this detective Vish Puri is average at best, and downright insipid if I am not feeling generous. And for a story that sells itself as a thriller, it isn’t all that exciting either exciting at all. Read More
