Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
every cat lay in wait for the day to fly by…
The stockings once hung.. now lay on the floor..
the contents of which was remembered no more…
The presents, once wrapped, now shredded for sure..
And the baubles, oh the baubles…batted and swiped,
stalked, stealthily from branches aloft,
Like glitter they smashed on the floor below,
what a sight! What a sound!
Such a satisfying prize causing purrs to abound.
The Turkey.. ahh the turkey.. sat as glistening prey,
for the claws that were lurking not far away..
The ham smelt delicious, but waving hands flew,
in every direction, a cat they must shoo…
And when the hustle and bustle of the day comes to end
on the faces that smiles and love once adorned
A frown and a scowl is now firmly in place
Kitty-redemption must be sought poste haste
A rub and a purr against legs as they pass
A gentle paw reaching with that look in my eyes
That says it was all just in fun
Just a kitty’s day play…
Why so serious?
Why so much angst ?
Over toys and presents and baubles and things
that were made to bring joy
Yet for you, not so much.
Why not forgive and forget
and love me anyway?
On a lap I will sit
A purr I will give
Persistent for your love to return
There it is
I can see it
A smile it does creep
Round the corner
Just a hint.
You know you can’t stop it
There’s no point in trying
You know you can’t hide it
lets face it,
As mad as you get, it only takes but a while
for you to submit.
In my charms you surrender
In my eyes you melt
til all is forgotten, forgiven and dealt
Off to bed we must go
For Santa awaits
With a smirk, off we trundle
With a satisfied purr, lights go off,
the day’s done.
As you sleep, as you rest,
with visions of sugar-plums that dance in your head.
As tomorrow’s light dawns,
I remind you once more
Christmas is MY time,
Of this I am sure…
Love & Merry Christmas – From all of us at Cat’s Meow!!!
