maybe cats can teach us
some very worthy lessons
so elegant, self-efficient and detached

no real need for us, they are replete
lazing in the nearest sunny spot
lots of licks and body washes

easily demand treats and pats
communicate their preferred food
and time with their self-reliant mood

can leap and jump a mile
moult and scratch your pile
never rude but not docile

Stop Press
contrary killing habits rile
befriend pests with a smile
yet kill birds, lizards and those worthwhile?
