On Tuesday the 15th,
The day spent time at a funeral home,
The cold rainy day brought a
Stray orange cat into a garage
Emptied of medical equipment.
Coming home from a day of
Funeral plans made for a
Loved man who despised cats,
A descendant of the lion clans
Makes its way into a new kingdom.
He passed all the lines and laser beams,
He reached the furthest landing
And lasted the longest of any feline
That’s come onto the forbidden property.
No risk of being tossed by the scruff,
Hissed at, or chased away,
Perhaps he’s the cleverest of all.
May he rest in peace.
