The Black Cat

Daily Prompt – Buddy

Mary had a little lamb
But it was the cat that concerned her more
The black cat that lived on her street
The one in the little shop corner

They thought the cat was harmless
Named him Buddy for goodness sake
“What bad could possibly come from that sweet black cat?” – they said
The one in the little shop corner

But Mary knew of the bad things that happened when that cat came around
People were dying, children were crying – there were cases going unsolved
Yet no one seemed to question the black cat
The one in the little shop corner

Mary wouldn’t dare go find
Mary did not want to search
The source of the problem was, without a doubt the black cat
The one in the little shop corner

One day that black cat
Looked right into Mary’s soul
And Mary stood frozen in place
Right by that little shop corner

And poor Mary never saw
That truck racing down the street
It’s like the black cat planned the whole thing
While waiting at that little shop corner
