I have not done anything wrong Then again, my memory Ain’t that long A walk in the sunny park Has become a stroll in quicksand In the dark I watch the news And search to see Who has got it worse? It does not help It doesn’t remove my curse I should not complain But I do I should keep in the race Even if I think I’m through It’s not like I have a choice My alone time in the wilderness Is not the only voice And if the answers are only That humans are a mistake Find a big eraser For the future and past steps You may take I think I’ll stay in the saddle And enjoy the battle
WHISKERS AND WHISPERS
My little baby My little dear You’ve lost so much weight Soon you’ll disappear We been together for so long Yet it seems like only yesterday We both were born You can’t feel anything except my kisses You can’t hear a thing no more Except my whispers If cats and dogs lived as long as humans And I do mean to disparage There would certainly be no need for marriage Remember when that Racoon tried to eat me through the window? You stayed by my side instead of running solo Sooner or later we’ll both be in the sky You can meet Grandma and Grandpa And my first cat with one eye There is no one left anyway except for us And on this trip we won’t need a carrying case Or the need of a senior discounted bus Only thing left to say Is that in a world full of barn feed You’ve been a prime rib fillet
