A Dark Time for Rhyme

The feral cat slowly stalked the unwary rat at the edge of the vacant lot.  Without a sound the matted feline burst from its cover and clamped its jaws down upon the rodent’s head. It was a meal.  It was sinewy and as flea-ridden as the stalker itself, but a meal nonetheless.  The cat sat, licking the mat, washing away the last traces of rat.
