Black Cats are Brightest in Daylight

Calico cats are an epitome of beauty

A creole of colors and an unruly hooligan

Yet the world still thinks this is horribly gorgeous

Praised on paper but never in person

The world says it loves black cats, but believes in myths and curses

The biggest cats are only seen as claws and fur

Yet the women who can afford this apparel ignore the lost and feral

Common colors of house cats are the last to be seen on the street

Preferences align with tabbies and Siamese

Conveniently the lightest breeds

These views are all too familiar

That’s why feline and feminine sound similar

Beauty is only seen on one end of the spectrum
