Claw- Squiddy Geiger - September 05, 2012

Soundly asleep, there is a touch, a nudge
You bat it away, refusing to budge
The touch becomes a niggle
Something has made you wiggle

You ignore the intrusion, will it away
The dream is too lovely, no, not today
The intrusion becomes an annoyance
Something has tainted the dreamy dance

You force your eyes to stay shut
The annoyance has landed on your gut
You resist too long, the patting paw
Which is now a very sharp claw

You open your eyes, sitting upright
Adrenaline rush as you regain sight
Your aging feline demanding food
Valuing your skin, you feed the old dude

Your cat, finally obeyed, is thinking thus
"I don't understand the morning fuss
I give him a chance to save his skin
Feed me faster, you'll never win."
