Favor

I want to ask you a favor,
which is strange thing to do
since cats don’t ask for much
they just make demands of you.
The thing is, this time,
I need a little hand
and while I’d ask you nicely,
I actually will demand.
If you could do what I want
and then be on your way
since you’ll be my next vicitm
if you choose to stay.

Lamb

I don’t understand
why you won’t let me in.
There are battles to fight
and wars to win.
If I could only enter,
I would make you see
that nothing can stand
between that mouse and me.
You think you may know
about who I am
but really I’m not
some cute little lamb.
Ferocious and wild,
I’ll attack if I must
’cause I always get my mouse,
in that you can trust.

I demand many things of you,
but there is a demand above the rest.
When it’s time to eat,
I want only the best.

So how can it be
that you’re telling me
we are out of can
when that wasn’t the plan?

Mealtime is sacred
and you’ve ruined that for me.
Can’t you see that I’m starving
and you offer me tea?

I don’t want that dry food,
I’m just not in the mood.
When gravy is calling,
you best not be stalling.

So hurry it up
and get what I need
since mistakes like this
might make you bleed.
