          A friend is a friend

A cat and a chicken strange to the core,
Slept together on a bed of straw.
They followed each other all of the day,
No matter where or how trying the way.

They went about their daily chores,
According to cat and chicken laws.
They never spoke or disputed a claim,
All this without our superior brain.

This is no pshaw, but a metaphor, for
What ever the species there can be rapport.

Sy,
Does this mean we can be friends?
Only kidding!
I totally agree with you, and liked your statement, "All this without a superior brain" Very clever and very true

Well, we are certainly in the right place to prove that many species can co-exist in peace.Even a snail and a turtle can have a whirlwind relationship!!!

Interesting thoughts these days, Sy......

Beautifully put my friend.   Friendship comes from a warm and gentle heart and has nothing to do with race, color, creed or spiecies (sp?). Thanks for this wonderful poem Sy.

Seymour~
Every once in a while, I'm not so sure
I know where you're coming from ..  
but then I get the feeling that you
might not know either.  

Amazing man you are !
I always read yours twice (at least)
and find little subtleties with each new read.
I thank you for the interesting read.
Love ya' ~*Marge*~
