Regular Feline

I was never interested in that life
so polished or so they thought
too much unnecessary style for no reason
no time to have real fun
always under the scope of the aristocrats
do this and not that
no time to be a real cat
stifled by collars and frills and things
always poised
I wanted to lay in the heat of the sun
or steal a little shade and frisk
at the dragonflies and sparrows
while they paraded in the air
a rogue they called me that was my
new name.
I walked with pride with my tail held high
they do not know the meaning of freedom
they have to hold it all in, while I waltz in my
nakedness with my smile
I am not worthy of the wall of fame
I am free
