The kitten and the crow,
both nestlings,
could have been sisters.
Cute and perfect and both
as black as obsidian
tussling like siblings on
the grass.

With raised fur and feathers
they jump and run.
To try and bite a crow
is not easy,
or to dart the sharp beak
of precision into a skitty kitty.
Neither skill was quite perfected.

Then, I with my broom and
instinct of protection,
invade the fracas,
not knowing who to protect,
I sweep the broom here and there
jab at the air
and yell, "stop that"
until I notice the mother crow
decending on the fray
and scat
just like the cat.
