Neo & Charlie
Neo is the chosen one, runt of the litter
black with one white star upon his chest to glitter
He was first to open shining green eyes
to view his humans, hungry he then cries
Charlie is the deformed one, that walks upon his elbows
Tabby striped, with a sweet demeaner as he really knows
that his time is short here upon this earth
with his people that rescued him at birth.
As they grow together learning how and why
Neo is aggressive and Chalrie is so shy.
Neo jumps, ninja style through the air
Charlie cushions his blow without a care
softening his brother's fall
with his long arms too tall
though he is fast at running
he keeps himself from funning
rolling onto his back to fight
long arms extend a vicious sight,
Neo wins the play but he knows
that Charlie lets him win and though
His perfect body is everything he could want
Charlie has more balance with a grace to flaunt.
They curl 'round each other when they need sleep
Dreams they seem to share, as Charlie hides his feet.
They awake to a new day
of frisky food and to play
give loving affection to humans they adore
that they both picked to be their pets forever more.
