A Refuge In Need

Sammi Cox has served up another writing challenge. Read all about the challenge here.

I’ve reworked and condensed this old poem so I can offer it as a response to the challenge:

Breathless mice huddle
under the old log as claws
lacerate the wood
over their haven.

Snarling tomcat punishes
the log for its interference
with his attack, his hunger
for its trembling refugees.
