Upon awakening from my nap,
Nary a word need be spoken.
For I can tell by the sweat on my back,
That the air conditioning is broken.
Sammy and Daddy,
Lying in the sun.
On the very last day,
Of my vacation.
Sitting on the edge of the bed this morning,
Lost in my thoughts and life’s hard knocks.
I snap back to reality and discover it took,
Ten minutes to put on my socks.
The weather is unpredictable in Spring,
It may be rainy or it may be sunny.
But one thing that never changes is,
Sammy wants to catch that bunny!
I have a little kitten,
Who sleeps most of day.
I am really jealous,
Wish I could live that way!
Sammy and chocolate,
Such a wonderful pair.
I must enjoy them apart,
Or end up eating her hair.
Dreary, rainy, cold afternoon,
And I’m feeling quite brain dead.
But wise, old Sammy helps me out,
By saying, “Let’s go back to bed.”
Chattering at birdies from the window sill,
Sammy would like to chase, bite and maul.
Dad, if you would just let me out,
I KNOW I could catch them all!
