Different Views over Time

by Alan Cambey

We loved the dear kitten,
He was so happy and playful,

So we paid the price and brought him home.

The very next day we stopped by the vet,
To remove his claws and have him castrated.

 We never thought it was mutilation.

We all loved the dear fellow,
He was our pride our joy,

We never thought it was mutilation.

 We feed him daily,
And played with him endlessly,

We never thought it was mutilation

 Our parents had done the same,
We never gave it a thought,

We never thought it was mutilation

 We are good caring people,
As all who know us well will attest,

We never thought it was mutilation.

 Now looking forward in time,
We could not deal with the kitten on equal terms,

Yes it was love, mutilation and love.

 What were we thinking.
Why weren’t we thinking.
