Cat Owner's Prayer
Because I'm only human,
It's sometimes hard to be...
The wise, all-knowing creature
That my cat expects of me.
And so I pray for special help,
To somehow understand...
The subtle implications
Of each proud meowed command.
Oh, let me not forget that sofas
Were put on earth to shred.
And what I like to call a lap,
Is actually a bed.
I know it's really lots to ask,
But please, oh please, take pity...
And though I'm only human,
Make me worthy of my kitty!
I don't know where this came from but if you do,
will you let me know so that I can give proper credit? Thanks!
