Prowling
Cats of unusual size roam their land
Cats lurking for their chance to pounce
Watching

Watching
Eyes scanning every inch for movement
Eyes looking for any sign of human activity
Hungering

Hungering
Throats gurgling with the thought of the feast
Throats dry from the lack of food and drink
Thinking

Thinking
Minds wrapping around brilliant ideas in their heads
Minds pondering places to hide
Remembering

Remembering
Smirks creeping at the thought of their near extinction
Smirks widening at the sight of the few left
Pouncing

Pouncing
Paws ripping through the air toward the unsuspecting prey
Paws tearing through the skin of the diminishing feast
Eating

Eating
Tongues enjoying the last of the wiped out human race
Tongues licking the last of the meal, ready to go hunting again
Prowling

The author's comments:
I based this poem off of a creepy picture of dressed up cats. They seemed almost futuristic and deadly, thus this strange idea came to me. Obviously, normal is overrated.
