Poetry: 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
