The Predator – a riddle

***

What is it that sneaks through darkness and night?

It’s soundless and careful it doesn’t need light.

A lethal predator in twilight and day,

no chance to survive for its hunted prey.

 *

It’s a magician when it comes to disguise,

only light to betray its beautiful eyes.

ears made to hear the slightest move

a body to make the successful prove.

 *

They can be tall and small and medium size

no matter how big they bring death as surprise.

They can be brown or black or red or white,

Grey or mixed with dots or stripes.

*

They can be with short tail or one very long

with stumpy, thick or thin tail it never is wrong.

They’ve got whiskers some got ear tips and some are without

some are flat nosed and some have a beautiful snout.

 *

Sometimes they’re sweet and sometimes they’re wild

and some of them are like our own child.

Some of them climb or stay on the floor

some of them purr the other ones roar.

*

But all of them have their own deadly claws

On all of their four velvety paws.

The riddle is easy, as simple as that

Of course I’m talking about “The Cat”.
