ODE TO A CHRISTMAS TREE
by Major Tom
So you have once more tested me,
You human who put up a tree.
You’ll never learn, your head’s too small,
I am the King, I own it all.
Its baubles I will break, and then
I’ll eye the skirt for more mayhem.
You must allow I am a critter
And have no use for box of litter.
The house is mine, so sayeth I,
You only cheer me when you sigh.
Tree, or food, or bed, or mouse,
It’s mine when it is in this house.
I am a cat, you lose the fight,
So Merry Christmas and good night!
