Cats Don’t Care
Cats don’t care what dogs think
they just look down and sorta wind.
Perch themselves, way up high
the dogs bark and start to cry.
It’s really not fair, those agile cats
hiding in places, just like rats.
The dogs want to play, join in the fun
chase that cat, make it run.
But cats care less, don’t need to play fair
like to tease, don’t have a care.
Poor dogs sit and wonder why?
Sly old cat naps with a sigh.
Dogs keep guard, waiting for a twitch
cat doesn’t move, not even for an itch.
The game goes on, cat unaware
the dogs just plead, please care.
