In transit

In transit

The commuters

Would sit

With the cat

Who

Every

Weekday

Would

Get on

The bus

๐Ÿ˜ธ

At the bus depot

At the beggining

& end of the route

The cat

Would

Hop on

Proclaiming

A merry

Meow

Of hello

Receiving

Offerings

Of snacks

From

Several

Of the

Passengers

๐Ÿ˜ป

Curl up on

A seat kept

Kindly

Empty

For them

Observe

The activity

Of everyone

& everything

๐Ÿฑ

Watching

As people

Got off

The bus

One by one

Hiding that

Intense

Cat sense

Of loss

Goodbyes

Aren’t for

Felines

They tend

To mourn

Them

This gregarious

Cat being

No exception

๐Ÿ˜ฟ

To terms though

When

It was

Finally the

Cat’s time

To return

To their

Stop

To their

Home

After adventure

๐Ÿ˜บ

Saying goodbye

To their

Public

Secret

They thank

The friendly

Driver

Leave

The autobus

Stealthily

Slip back

Into their

House

๐Ÿ˜ผ

None the

Wiser

Until one

Day

Arrived

A newspaper

Reporter
