Odd Companions

Extra Pound And . . .
Extra Pound plowed around his new-found farm,
for what was there else to keep it from harm,
but a faithful rat
and a barnyard cat
whose fire-forged trust brought their foes to alarm.

Barnyards provide a steady supply of that sort of stuff.

Erm, as we are dealing with Extra Pound here, should we read into the relationship of rat and cat an allusion to some "Axial" political allegory?

Sounds good. Let me know if you think of something.
