A French Fedora



Felines frolic in a fanciful frame,
feigning fortune, friendship, and fame.

Follow the feathers and fringe on her frock,
a small furry foot you will find.

A fierce little face frightens her foe, and
furthers her feeling that fun has begun.

A French fedora falls from his paw as
he fights to future his faint.

A final flicker and flash of her tail
proves his freedom is far from over.

Forged in the frailty of our mind,
this painting may be familiar.

Frankly, we must ask ourselves…
Is this feline fantasy truly fiction?
