They know

Have you seen a bird stop mid-song
And fly away without a sound?
Have you seen a cat stop purring or playing
And quickly run away at nothing?
Have you seen a dog pause
And growl
Shrinking from empty air?

They say animals know.
They just know.
And you better listen to them
Because when a bird stops singing
When a cat is staring
When a dog starts growling
You need to stop.
Just stop.

Because the birds can see
Because the cats can hear
Because the dogs can smell
When there is something
