The Housecat


I awaken in my fortress
Yet nothing bothers me
I help myself to my breakfast
And wait for the others to leave
With Mary off to work
And Jim off to go play
I can honestly say
I will have the best of days

First place is the sofa
And next are the shoes
I will feast my paws upon them
And this time I won’t lose

I will peep out the windows
At the dogs who are outside
I feel as though I am royalty
I feel like I’m sitting high

Everything is placed out
Just like how I like it to be
Oh the life of a housecat
I’ll enjoy this indeed
