Cats in Every Space

by Mark A. Dye

I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I got to bed at night
they sleep upon my face

Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.

I've never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I'll have a cat in every space
Until I'm gray and old.

For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features.

Now take my house away from me
and place me in a tent
I'll have a cat in every space
And still I'll be content.

The background is based on a photograph of Oliver taken by Dave Berrier. According to Oliver, "Daddy took the pic the day I came home from the shelter with Mommy. I was so tired from exploring my new home and toys and everything that I fell right back to sleep when he plopped me in Mommy's teacup."
