  • Good Queen Bast
    by Michelle M. Mead

    Still air whispering heat
    On waves the clouds expand
    There lies a Goddess in retreat
    With paws instead of hands

    Black body long and sleek
    With jewels upon her throat
    And a countenance so meek
    That belies her cruelest joke

    Those eyes of golden green
    And her purr a subtle roar
    From her victims still unseen
    She skirts the desert floor

    She dances in the humid air
    With feet like butterfly wings
    Now her eyes a deadly stare
    A silent death they bring

    Teeth bared up to the sunset
    With a hiss to scare an asp
    Hesitation is now regret
    Her prey within her grasp

    Queen Bast is upon you
    A pounce into the air
    Queen Bast is upon you
    The Goddess Feline Fair
