I jump just as
She moves her toes
And go running from the room
Out to the hall
Where I will wait
In case I have to zoom

Off somewhere else
Or maybe I’ll
Just lie here all sprawled out
If she should dare
To walk by me
For her ankles I’ll lash out

Or else I’ll sit
Just by her side
And meow as if in need
I know I’ve treats
But they’re not fresh
And I desperately want my feed

Or maybe I’ll
Just sleep right here
So innocent and so cute
She’ll never guess
That I’m a brat
Hello, my name is Boots.
