Monkey Cats

by Chris Sorrenti


          for Eartha and Skybear


At 10pm
This is the time they play they play
This is the time they play
This is the time they play they play
This is the time they play

The cats go round and round and round
Chasing their tails
Down and up and up and down
While meeting the most remarkable men

This is the way they play they play
This is the way they play
This is the way they play they play
This is the way they play

Up and down and round and round
On flower tops and telephones
Bowls of salmon and human laps
Learning Gurdjieff along the way

At 10pm
This is the time they play they play
This is the time they play
This is the time they play they play
This is the time they play

The cats go round and round and round
Chasing their tails
Up and down and down and up
While meeting the most remarkable women

This is the way they play they play
This is the way they play
This is the way they play they play
This is the way they play

Round and round and up and down
On table tops and microwave
Banana bowl and human heads
Teaching Gurdjieff along the way

To primate hosts who are the most
Cause they can open a tin of salmon
And join in the fun of never quite knowing
Which is the feline and which the ape

At 10pm
This is the way they play they play
This is the way they play...

Cute. Very Cute. I'll be honest, I thought for just a second it was comparable to a poem on my page called "The Duplicity of the Hunt" but I think I was wrong. You tell me. but I did enjoy this very much. And your darlings are adorable.

Set to music this could be a round! Fun. Very descriptive of cats!

Neat one that captures the feel of cat personality. I think the cats could teach the spiritualist a thing or two. But alas what do cats care about such things. --bf

I smiled instantly and started singing along. This is quite a "picker-upper." The cats are very cute too by the way. ~JPP
