The Deer, the Cat, and the Bull

Young cat showed its claws,
oblivious to big bull
waiting to pounce
at the slightest provocation.

Their deer friend stood up
in the middle,
trying to steer the bull
away from frightened cat.

Too late, for damage
had been done already.
Cat crawled back to its house,
licking its wounds.

The bull was hurting
almost as bad,
and wandered ashamed,
its tail between its legs.

Back into the forest,
the deer knelt, heart heavy,
amidst a pool of tears,
doing nothing.
