Baba Yaga's Cat

I want to come back
as Baba Yaga's cat*Cat*
and save all the young girls
with flowers*FlowerY* in their hair.
The #metoo movement
is not a fairytale.
But I think that old, skinny witch
will let me weave
rainbows *RainbowR* on her loom,
to guide them home.
There will be no pot of gold at trail's end,
just safety, and sun*Sun*
and sun
and sun.

Author's Note: Baba Yaga is a Slavic witch who may be evil, but just as well benign to those that are brave and pure of heart. In one tale Baba Yaga's cat helps a young innocent girl escape the witche's kettle. I think BABA knew all along.
