Best That You’ll See

When will you get it?
I do what I want.
So no matter your wishes
I’ll go on this jaunt.

I’ll sleep in this bed
and I’ll eat on this shelf.
I’ll do as I please;
it’s good for my health.

Your commands are pointless
and your wishes for not.
Your demand are futile
and your hopes, distraught.

But look on the bright side
at least you’ve got me
and I know for a fact
I’m the best you’ll ever see.

Best That You’ll See

Birthday Celebrations

I hope you loved your present,
I had me in mind when I got it.
It’s the thought that counts,
I hear.

I hope your birthday was grand
while you cared and served me.
You should honor me every day
of the year.

I hope you enjoyed your treats
but I’m glad you got mine first.
No celebration is complete
without a fish.

I hope you don’t expect much
since it was only one day.
The others belong to me;
get my dish.

Forced to Act

What’s with all this noise,
can’t you see I’m trying to sleep?
You say it’s all for me
but I find that hard to believe.

I never asked for that shelf
or for you to take that one away.
Why can’t you leave things as they are
for just one day?

Cats, we do not like change
so just respect this fact
and stop all this noise
before you force me to act.
