Fable


Rat logged onto Facebook.
Ratty lost her head.
Rat forgot to eat, to drink,
Disregarded bed.
Cat stole onto desktop.
Kitty-cat was sly.
Hungrily she leapt and pounced.
That day Rat would die.

This was written for the Trifecta Writing Challenge.  We were to write a fable in 33 words.

Rat lost himself in FB! Sad, but it happens too often these days! Great fable.

I don't even need to ask the moral. It was crystal clear after "Facebook"

I could be Ratty. With the 20 extra pounds gained through inactivity as my Kitty-Cat. :) Nice!

Why is the cat always the antagonist? Mean, old cat.
