Hangin In There


I was minding my own business, a smart tabby cat lazing in the sun,
As the chief of this roost, the house diva, the boss of my domain,
Having such a busy itinerary, its really hard to get all things done,
I have to eat and sleep then I must do more of the exact same,
As the smart one I keep a cool attitude, you know, I got game!

One day my little owner scooped me up, she said she wanted to play, 
She toddled me down the hall, saying we would just have so much fun,
These little hands had a firm grasp of me, I could not budge or run away,
Dressed in dolly clothes she hung me on the door then said “ALL done”.
Left all alone to hang in there, smart... maybe not, I guess she’d won!

    hi, Lee , just getting ready to go off. well, you are a different case. and the folks in movies and in classrooms can always put their phones on vibration, and not ring setting! also, when I was a teen in the 70's we all managed quite nicely to get thru a day without phone calls from friends. If mom needed me in an emergency, she only had to ring the school and I'd get the message. I really miss those days of sanity!!

    How true... it must be sooo frustrating to have them going off in school. have a nice sleep. lee
