Exploring the Human Condition: altered states of consciousness

The Legend of Riggie Roo

If only kitties, they could talk,
the stories they would tell…
Of all the battles, fought and won,
and all the foes that fell.

The bravest one of all, they say,
was the Mighty Riggie Roo!
For any friend, he’d come to fight!
His heart was brave and true.

Then one dark day, while Riggie slept,
coyotes did attack.
They circled quickly, savage beasts,
and bit him in the back.

Though badly hurt, he stood his ground,
and fought them all away.
Four days it took, to make it home,
his last goodbyes to say.

Some people say when sadness strikes,
the Angels will fly down,
and help the ones that need it most…
when no one is around…

The Mrs. Man prayed long and hard
for them to stop his pain.
She held him close and called his name,
her tears fell down like rain.

His lifelong friends all gathered ’round,
they feared the end was near.
And though he struggled hard to stay,
his last cries they were to hear.

Though days have passed and he is gone,
the kitties still tell the tale,
of the Mighty Warrior, brave and true,
a friend who’d never fail.

His family is sad, they miss him bad,
he seems so far away…
Though in the end, they lost their friend,
in their hearts, he will always stay!

  1. Cissy,

    What a beautiful homage to your cat and I know how much you still miss him.I’m so sorry. :(

    I don’t know which blog you’re active on! I was on one that you weren’t posting on anymore (your original I think), so I keep checking the newer one that you were active on (left you a message there to see if you were okay awhile back) and then found you here. Ahhh. I don’t know what to do to keep track of you? Well, I’m trying my best my friend.

    Hope you are well,
    Hugs! A
