Bokuju's Revenge

Bokuju- my cat, or so I'm told,

Makes a play ever so bold,

Stretches and observes the rain outside swirl,

and sticks his tongue to the dogs of the world.

He looks around a bit, circles himself twice

Admires his tail and shuts his eyes.

Dogs and Men looking at him

Wonder what they did wrong

to toil and spin

When they can curl up better than he

with tea and a book or three.

Bokuju opens one eye in repose

and mocks the one life that we fast close.

"I've got nine, all mine
to live this divine."
