Feline Lament

Feline Lament  © 2013 Mollie Pearce McKibbon

cat

Don’t you know,

We were once revered

In ancient Egypt

So I’ve heard?

No one doubted

About our worth.

We were known

For our royal birth.

We were feted, loved,

Worshiped and adored;

Fed royal tidbits,

Were never bored.

But now I sit and

Twitch my tail,

Ignoring fish in their

Glassed-in jail,

Pretending not

 To Notice saucy birds

As they fly by with

Their chirping words.

I sit upon a window sill

Or prowl the house

While it is still.

Oh goodness me,

Now what was that?

A tuna can?

Well….I’m a cat!
