A poem from my cat to my wife. She suspects that my wife is not trying hard enough.
Eighteen years of trying
But you've still not got it right
Can't you see I'm crying
When I cuddle you at night

I am purring in your presence
Mama, you still don't understand
I have shown a lot of patience
You're so clumsy with that hand

You need to stroke me here
You need to scratch me there
You miss the spot you hear
I am not a teddy bear

A cat has needs and you
Are required to love me
So I push close and true
Can't you hear my plea

Mama, you need to learn to love me
Much better than you do
I will hang on until I see
The message gets through to you.
