Black cat, black cat
Purring in the night
Black cat, black cat
Creeping out of sight

Harsh cry, harsh cry
As you must descend
Sharp claws, sharp claws
As you tear and rend

Devil spawn, devil spawn
Mewing at the moon
Dark cry, dark cry
Finding prey so soon

Young child, young child
Sleeping in his bed
Black cat, black cat
So, so soft you tred

Long gone, long gone
See how he has bled
Black cat, black cat
So, so soft you tread

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Loved the riff on Brown Bear but so much better. Terrific.
