++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

O most noble wearers of fur,

with whom we humans live but whom we never own,

you are creatures we seek after,

the greatest we have ever known.

+++++

You are most skilled people trainers,

adept in the ways of behavior modification;

your training of us seems as entertaining

ways; we need an education.

+++++

Dogs, some say, are man’s best friends,

even the best friends in Washington,

but cats, I know, to us also attend

quite well, giving sincere attention.

+++++

Some say that you are aloof,

as if that manner is bad;

but I say that an honest cat, even one on a roof,

can be a true friend–not a cad.

+++++

So I praise you, noble felines,

as you stretch and as you curl

up; you I cannot malign;

your flag I do unfurl.
