I possess no magic,
No special powers.
I am just a man,
Who walks the earth.
An earth which owes me
Food, water and air
Are all given on account.
And when my debt is due,
I will die.
My body returning sustenance
To that earth which,
Granted to me the quickest glimpse,
Of the beauty and wonder
That is the world.
When Sammy wants attention,
She says “Mao” and stares.
But when she does that on my desk,
I lose at solitaire.
Midnight steps go tap, tap, tap
Whilst I enjoyed my long night’s nap.
Feeling some pressure, I opened my eyes,
At Sammy’s nose in my face, well what a surprise!
Took a little overnight trip,
I was gone for 36 hours,
Upon return, Sammy growled at me,
“Get the tuna, forget the flowers!”
The culinary life is very hard,
Continually getting into scuffles.
Wonder why they get so mad,
Cuz I like truffles in my wuffles…
The time has come, my waiter said,
To talk of many things.
Sandwiches with tater tots?
Chili fries or frings?
