Chapter 1 – The Rule of the Claw
When the wind blew wet and wild,
Tom was born in a box behind a store—
No place for kitten or child.
His mother left when he was young.
His father he never would know.
Brothers and sisters drifted away—
He was left to survive on his own.
His claws were sharp, his legs were long.
His whiskers thick and bold.
His fur was the color of shadows at dawn,
His eyes were yellow gold.
You grow up fast in Fortunate Town
