If I Were a Cat (Poetry)

adorable animal cat close up

If I were a cat…

I’d be cute and fluffy
Mostly black with
Shades of tan
And black here
And there

I’d constantly be
Grooming myself
Not for vanity’s sake
But just to
Be clean

I’d mostly mind
My own business
But on occasion
Take time out
For those

Who deserve it
To share affection
For especially
Those who always
Return it

I’d seem to
Constantly nap
And loaf around
Like a lump
All the time

But, really,
I’m just
How good
I have it

I‘d pride myself
With being content
With my humble
And lifestyle

Other cats
May dream
Of world domination
But the closest
I’ve ever seen

A cat get is
As an armchair
Sidekick to some
Not so overly
Successful villains

If you were a cat, or your favorite animal, how would you be?
