Christmas For a Cat (A Poem)


So you've been out shopping for Christmas gifts I see


Well it's okay for you humans But what about a cat like me


You got an armload full of presents what is all that crap


Just a bunch of boxes that I can't help unwrap


Got set up a fancy tree that I can't climb up


Drinking lots of eggnog but don't offer me a cup


Don't give me any of that shrimp cocktail on your plate


Fill my dish with dried up Friskies and claim that I already ate


Bring in a bunch of string to make me think you've made my day


Just so you can plug it in and swat me if I play


Well I've had enough of Christmas and now you're gonna pay


I'll show you that it's hazardous to torture me this way


When I leave paw prints on your pie what will your guests all say


I'll run every pair of pantyhose that passes by my way


They'll quit eating turkey and that dip you just opened


When I jump up in their lap and pass some kitty wind


I'll snag the cashmere sweater of your husband's boss's wife


And make you wish your mother had never gave you life


When you throw me out into the cold you'll wish you'd kept me in though


'Cause I'll go and get my girlfriend and we'll yowl outside your window


So if you want a Christmas you know what it better be?


If it ain't make "kitty happy day" you're gonna hear from me!
