Why do cats think they can squeeze

Into a box half their size?

And don’t they know that perching

On the edge of a water filled bath,

Is a little unwise?

Do they not comprehend;

When they reach the top

Of an eighty foot tree –

Getting rescued is no guarantee?

And how many times

Before they understand;

The gifts they present us

Should be contraband?

Why – when you buy them

The latest scratch post,

Do they lacerate your leather sofa

The most?

Is it because they are all plain stupid?

Or misunderstood and convoluted?


My theory is – they’ve evolved to control,

Because they already own us

Body and soul.
