The reading material that is often found in the common household bathroom can be a good insight into lifestyle and character. Currently Andros and I seem to have Mindfulness for Cats, Test your Cat and a 1978 Scottish whisky side amongst our loo library. Disclaimer – I did not put them there! Ok, so I do browse the eclectic collection from time to time! Today’s poem, equally as random as the post itself, is about a day in the life at the swiss love shack!
The day was hot like melted fudge
And not ideal for gardening
Good job that I don’t hold a grudge
That I am one for pardoning
For as we ventured down below
So we could start repotting
Our kitties had left quite a show
Too pungent to fail spotting
I mopped and flopped my heart it dropped
Chaotic was the cellar
A crispy lizard my eyes copped
Felt quite bad for the fella!
Stones and tufts and feathered fluff
Now we had seen the lot!
I know these three used to live rough
But we’re no moggie squat!
Yet right on cue no doubt they knew
Our soft hearts both forgave them
Cause kitties do what kitties do
It was our choice to save them
No doubt quite soon I‘ll change my tune
And curse their wild antics
They’ll look at me like I’m a goon
For being so pedantic
What do we know of how life goes
For once part feral kitties?
Who caterwaul in twilight‘s glow
They do not need our pity
But plain respect for they’re purrfect
Their mess is theirs to question
What can us humble slaves expect?
I bow down to their gestion
