I watch the cat curled in front of the fire
Paws and claws flexing gently as she dreams
The old habits return each year without fail
As she worships the warmth flicking her tail

Paws and claws flexing gently as she dreams
Her ears still listening, even as she feigns sleep
As she worships the warmth flicking her tail
She stretches to remind us “I, the special one, am here”

Her ears still listening, even as she feigns sleep
All movement is deliberate, with focused intent
She stretches to remind us “I, the special one, am here”
No fake humility for the Queen of the stars!

All movement is deliberate, with focused intent
She stalks majestically from favoured resting place
No fake humility for the Queen of the stars!
As she demands her rightful due.
