A cat delivers a present to my front door.
|A tabby cat by the name of More,
delivered a present to my front door.
He left a book of wisdom there;
’twas gracious of this shorthair.
The first bit of wisdom I read
was, Don’t be angry, and then go to bed.
That made sense; I agreed; blurted, ”Yup!”
because you don’t know, for sure, if you’ll wake up.
Then I read, Don’t lead with your chin.
I think it means, since you don’t always know what state folks are in,
then if you are overly nice,
you may get reactions that are cold as ice.
Don’t look back, something might be gaining on you!
Of course, live for today, make this present time do!
I look down at More, and he seems content;
he doesn’t seem to worry where yesterday went.
I like this one: Liars’ memories have to be good;
that is straightforward enough and understood.
The truth, you see, does not need to invent a story;
only the cold, hard facts, which are enough for reality.
Plus, It’s a long road that has no turning…
what goes around, comes around; I’m learning!
An open mind is a mind that’s yearning.
More’s tail is straight up which means he’s happy;
he does not read what I write, so I don’t know if he’d think it was sappy.
Well, that’s the thing; I’ve given it thought—
about what folks like or not.
Personal tastes are what they are
(I can wish upon a falling star.)
Que será, será and all that stuff,
guess I’ve said enough.
More looks at me and purrs, “Meow.”
I pet his head, then say, “And how!”
