A Darwinian moment.

The black and white of it

They say that black and white is
The most common colour scheme
In the natural world, the domino
Effect I suppose you could say.
I have two black and white cats,
Feline friesians if ever I saw them,
Mooching in a field, cow-cats both,
Grazing for the odd mouse, though
I have seen them chew grass, to
Help the gut, the cat gut, and that
Is the black and white of it.

Sharp and charming, in an odd but effective combination ... My love to the cow-cats :)

Something reassuring about concrete black and white, since abstraction produces so much gray... Provocative.
