Saith, a broken kitten, healed and became the tribe's leader and spokesman.
Dearly beloved Saith, sweet Saith
Did escape a typhoon's
Certain death. In you there was faith
In healing afternoons.
Live or die now in doctor's care.
Parasites made you need healthcare.
         Live or die now,
         Live or die now.
On the tribe you brought germ warfare.

Dearly beloved Saith, sweet Saith.
Broken bones slowly healed.
You learned to play. You were a wraith.
Leader in you revealed,
Make friends with each tribal member.
The vibe of each to remember.
         Make friends with each,
         Make friends with each.
Tribe lit in your eyes an ember.

Dearly beloved Saith, sweet Saith,
Tribe leader most special,
Each loved only you in good faith.
Your expressions facial
Molded to each, in care and play,
Only you announce Chicken Day.
         Molded to each,
         Molded to each.
Losing tribe felt like dying may.
