Katisha of Abyssinia

Wide-eyed young princess lounges
all day on her elegant cushions,
waking only to received the hissed
instructions of the old queen:

I am your superior! I have first place
in all things! You are but a tiny atom
in my presence! Give way to me!

She takes the ritual in stride, knowing
that old cats must instruct younger;
she knows she will one day own all this,
rule these humans with a single purr.
