[Poem] Mr. John by Ahmadullah Safi

I like cats because cats are
very beautiful.
I have a cat in Afghanistan.
My cat is very dangerous.
My cat fights with dogs and other cats.
Sometimes my cat goes to
another house.
He eats live chickens.
Always my cat looks after my pigeons.
He doesn’t eat them.
My cat is yellow and his eyes
are green.
His name is Mr. John.
I miss my cat all the time.
When I remember you, I cry for you –
my cat!
