Caught in the Act

(I heard the crunching of cat food in the night that did not sound quite right, got up and found a very small, very young possum raiding the cat’s dish.)

I am small I am fierce I will bite
if you poke at me
again!

I will gnash hiss snarl bite
if you bother me,
you Big!

Snap hiss See my teeth?  See my teeth?!
keep back or I’ll
bite! bite! 

And turn off that bloody light!
I’m a Creature of
the Night!
Small, and fierce and
I
will
bite!
