OATMEAL WITH CAT



OATMEAL WITH CAT
 
EAT MORE FIBER MY YOUNG DOC'S RULE
GOOD FOR OLD GUTS, CHOLESTEROL TOO.
 
I BRING BERRIES AND OATMEAL TO THE MORNING TABLE
BUT THE MUSH ISN'T CLOSE TO A NEW YORK BAGEL.
 
HALFWAY THROUGH THE ORDEAL THE CAT JUMPS ON MY LAP
AN ABUSED RESCUE KITTY SAFE NOW AND RELAXED.
 
HE SAVORS THE OATMEAL LEFT IN THE BOWL
LICKS MY FACE IN A THANK YOU AND CURLS INTO A BALL.
 
APPRECIATIVE PURRING VIBRATES STRAIGHT TO MY HEART
AND AGAIN I'M ENLIGHTENED BY FOUR-LEGGED SMART.
 
SO I'LL LET THIS OATMEAL THING GROW SOME ON ME
THROW IN GINGER, CINNAMON, A SLICE OF KIWI.
 
AND AGE LIKE SWEET BOY, A GRATEFUL OLD SOUL
CURLED IN A BALL WITH LOW CHOLESTEROL.
