My friend's spirit is like my cat, she
sleeps all day, but not under my bed
like some fur lined creatures. She prowls
the house watching TV in the black of
night and only stops for another bite to eat.
She feeds on frozen dinners not like my
Queenie who dines on fresh chicken and
turkey to keep her gorgeous tabby coat
Being in AA she drinks only water but
still rolls around on the floor, and snacks
throughout the day. She is an indoor lady
and doesn't want to traipse the streets,
probably due to early childhood trauma.
There is no argument... she is the Queen
of the house.
