They should not have left him there alone,Alone that is except for the cat.He was only nine, not old enoughTo be left alone in a basement flat,Alone, that is, except for the cat.A dog would have been a different thing,A big gruff dog with slashing jaws,But a cat with round eyes mad as gold,Plump as a cushion with tucked-in paws---Better have left him with a fair-sized rat!But what they did was leave him with a cat.He hated that cat; he watched it sit,A buzzing machine of soft black stuff,He sat and watched and he hated it,Snug in its fur, hot blood in a muff,And its mad gold stare and the way it satCrooning dark warmth: he loathed all that.So he took Daddy's stick and he hit the cat.Then quick as a sudden crack in glassIt hissed, black flash, to a hiding placeIn the dust and dark beneath the couch,And he followed the grin on his new-made face,A wide-eyed, frightened snarl of a grin,And he took the stick and he thrust it in,Hard and quick in the furry dark.The black fur squealed and he felt his skinPrickle with sparks of dry delight.Then the cat again came into sight,Shot for the door that wasn't quite shut,But the boy, quick too, slammed fast the door:The cat, half-through, was cracked like a nutAnd the soft black thud was dumped on the floor.Then the boy was suddenly terrifiedAnd he bit his knuckles and cried and cried;But he had to do something with the dead thing there.His eyes squeezed beads of salty prayerBut the wound of fear gaped wide and raw;He dared not touch the thing with his handsSo he fetched a spade and shovelled itAnd dumped the load of heavy furIn the spidery cupboard under the stairWhere it's been for years, and though it diedIt's grown in that cupboard and its hot low purrGrows slowly louder year by year:There'll not be a corner for the boy to hideWhen the cupboard swells and all sides splitAnd the huge black cat pads out of it.

Um hi I'm using a macbook, i just bought it. The day before my macbook got screwed up, i installed Snow Leopard(I'm not sure if this has anything to do with this). Anyway as usual, i pressed the power button. The apple logo appears with the gear thing. I was like waiting for it to load but it just won't start! I waited more than an hour, wating for it to start but it just won't start. I tried every methods, safe mode, pressing cmd=opt=p=r and so on. But it just won't work! I really need a help here. I've got all of my school stuff on my mac..
