12:45 pm - four a.m. song of feeding
Ask anyone who knows me, I'm an easygoing cat
I'm all about the chilling out, I've got the cool down pat
Don't really ask for nothing much, life's all good on the whole
But tonight there ain't no cat food in my bowl.

I've endured a few indignities in my time upon this earth
From jokes about my fuzziness to cracks about my girth
With patience I have borne these barbs that'd try another's soul--
But I'm offended there's no cat food in my bowl.

I didn't mind the time you gave me bows to make me pretty
Or rolled me in a blanket just to play Burrito Kitty
Or wrapped me 'round your shoulders and said "Hey, check out my fur stole!"
But I mind that there's no cat food in my bowl.

Now if I had my way, of course, I'd rule with iron paw
My merest whim a grand command, my meow would be the law
But my job here's to be the cat; provider is your role
So provide me with some cat food in my bowl.

All right, you've had your slumber, and your dreams of god-knows-what
But it's time that you addressed this pressing problem that I've got
Cause I'm a screamin' hungry cuss who's 'bout to lose control
...well hey look now, there's some cat food in my bowl.

Step 1. Put cat on blanket.
Step 2. Roll cat up in blanket.
Step 3. Pick up blanket and say things like "BURRITO KITTY NEEDS SOUR CREAM"

I'm sure he won't mind, tho I'd probably take attribution for this one. I'm not sure if he could've rhymed "earth" and "girth."

Curiously enough, I'd been listening to a lot of Leon Redbone the night before. I think you may be on to something here. :)

Did you have a tune in mind for this? In my mind's ear it is something like "Macavity".

Abbie's a poet and he didn't even know it!

Yes, you may hurt me now.

That old T.S. Eliot has nothing on your humanized rendition of Abbie's 4AM feeding song!

A few years ago, I wrote a verse and chorus of a blues song for Loki.

"Woke up this mornin' at quarter to noon
Should have known better than to get up so soon
Went to the kitchen, my food was all stale
Sat behind my mama's chair, she ran over my tail

And I
I got them kitty cat blues (mowowow)
Well I got to pee in your shoes
'cause I got them kitty cat blues."

Yours is far more eloquent.
