Ayhan Diril

The kitten






There is a kitten that is cute and brown
Sitting in front of a butcher’s in this town.
At the shop window fixing his eyes
for a piece of liver it cries.

Hungry looks never make the butcher think,
Considering his body in the pink.
Hunger blurs its sight, meows in pain,
On this tiny body,hunger puts a great strain.
