A single hand clap
Intended to rouse the world
Just startled the cat

If only our solitary applause could make a difference. Well maybe it does, besides scaring the 🐈. I’ve done that too, poor Kitty. (In the past. No cats anymore.)
Anyway, I enjoyed this, Ben.
Perhaps we start best by trying to wake ourselves?
P.S. I posted the promised possum poem today. (Was written 20 years ago.)
I though it might be a memory test. 😉
😊 As if! 😆
“Just startled the cat” sounds like a syncopated clatter of handclaps
I have sometimes thought a cat was more enlightened than I was.
