Cat and Mouse

Cat and Mouse

Clever is the cat, with claws as sharp as steel
Waiting for the mouse wandering carelessly
Set to pounce with stealth upon the slightest squeal
Still, without a sound, yes, waiting silently

Most unfortunate, the mouse that had no chance
Slightest scent of food sent it off to scurry
Dared to venture out without a single glance
Met by executioner, judge and jury

The five word prompts for The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt #49 are sound, sharp, clever, judge and still.
