The given up
Since you don''t want to know what cast-off cats would say
Be careful not to look into their frozen eyes,
For Nothingness will take you by surprise
And you will want to quickly walk away.
Nothingness, as if somebody just died,
And the body is there with you, still warm,
But now beyond any further harm
Except vet''s needle to confirm that humans lied.
