The Heat Never Bothered Me Anyway

You close the door

and say absolutely not

yet I don’t understand

it can’t be that hot.

I wait so patiently

like the good kitten I am

and I let out a meow;

you still don’t give a damn.

What torture this is

that I must endure?

Just let me out,

I’ll be fine, I’m sure.

Well if the answer is no

then I will just go to bed

since I cannot even fathom

the crazy thoughts in your head.

A quick five-hour nap

and I hear the door creak

time to get out

and sneak a quick peak.

I run with the speed

of a prized derby horse

rounding the corner

taking the quickest course.

I run through the door

and something is not well

certainly this had to be

the doorway to hell.

The heat hits me

just like a brick

and I drop to the ground,

I think I’m going to be sick.

So there may be a chance

that you had it all right,

no way am I staying out here,

goodbye and goodnight.
