• The cat eats the praying mantis
    By punching it to death,
    Pushing it with her paws,
    Playing soccer with it,
    Tossing it in the air,
    Carrying it around in her jaws
    And finally, when the insect
    Has no more motion or flutter,
    Chewing its green head off.

About The Author

Ray Harvey

I was born and raised in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. I've worked as a short-order cook, construction laborer, crab fisherman, janitor, bartender, pedi-cab driver, copyeditor, and more. I've written and ghostwritten several published books and articles, but no matter where I've gone or what I've done to earn my living, there's always been literature and learning at the core of my life.
