Catwoman (a poem)

Catwoman by Sean Nash

Catwoman artwork by Sean Nash.


Call me a villain
because I roar
when I scratch your face
and even the score.

Claws, paws, teeth, and hiss
Putting bullies down is bliss

He says no guns, no fun, no death;
revenge is justice at its best.

Fur, purr, curl, and stretch
I am not your villainess
I am freedom, I am night
Feline, fierce, and fixed to fight.

His symbol stretches across the stars
But I’m your hero when it’s dark.

Special thanks to artist Sean Nash for being so generous with his incredible artwork.
