why so careless as to leave it here alone

10 of 12 given words:
careless matters egg hope family
chart takers stay pie flat  

why so careless as to leave it here alone
were matters so bad to egg them on to flee
to hope that someone would stop to take it home
to provide it with a family?

perhaps to let it chart out ways to survive
reminiscent of kittens with no takers abandoned
within their tiny paws scavenging to stay alive
faceless and living a life of deprivation

no pie in the sky flat out with with stomachs empty
were the drunks and the homeless in a stupor
in backstreets and back lanes lacking dignity
phenomena of the economic downturn around the corner

  1. Sometimes there is further investigation to be done, as there may not always be a kitten waiting in such a trap.

  2. If you put it that way, the coming days don't look good.

  3. I like your description of desperation in those kittens: "within their tiny paws scavenging to stay alive"

  4. I'd like to think someone would assist instead of having to chart out ways to survive alone.

  5. I hope there are some sunshine also in days to come.
