Cat owners can’t have lovely things.
They wouldn’t stay lovely for long.
They’d end up in tatters and frayed.
I wish I could say I were wrong.
Cat owners can’t have a lie-in.
The miaowing begins around dawn.
A cat doesn’t care if you’re snoring
Or whether your curtains are drawn.
Cat owners can’t make a big fuss
About sifting and cleaning the litter.
Or the cats might start pooing elsewhere
And their owners would just become bitter.
Cat owners can’t be in control
Of how their cats choose to behave.
A cat will do just what it pleases
All the years from cradle to grave.
Cat owners lose meals to their cats
And they’ll use your best clothes as a bed.
It’s better to simply accept
That the cats own their owners instead.
