Ode to a Cat

Oh mystic beast
My furry child
You grumpy dumpling
From the wild

nocturnal creeper
Shoelace eater
Omnipotent creature
Has stole my seater

Dried liver gobbler
Ornament wobbler
Often moody
Gourmet foodie

Makes me broody?

Wars with armchair
Sleeps for Britain
Many layers, 
many lairs
Many hairs

Furball with teeth
Commander in chief
Prison guard to moths
Chaser of wasps

Oh round-faced wanderer
You expert ponderer
Wise man, 
Buddha
Superior comforter

I'm your cat lady
And you're my
cat-boy baby
