Small World

This is the time of year

when the world is cold and icy, and the ground all covered with snow,

for a cat to sit back and take stock of what he really needs in life.

Sure warm weather would be nice,

with room to roam and a grassy field filled with mice.

But maybe that's too much to ask for.

Maybe it's best to make do with what one has.

Maybe all a cat needs, after all, is just one haybale

on which to spend his days.
