BLACK CAT

If a
Black cat
Should cross your path
That means several years bad luck.

But
What if you pick it up
Because it meows at you.

And
In its haste
To get away
It scratches the Hell out of you.

By
Grabbing it
You kept it from
Crossing your path.

But . .
Now you're bleeding.

Good luck or bad?
