Complex Cats

I awoke to find the Cats
Had constructed a high-rise
Complex in our bedroom.

high-rise (Soho)

Hunter had the Penthouse
By reason of his seniority.
Come to think of it,
He looks a little like Guccione.

Bob Guccione   Hunter (the suave one)

Joseph, still a kitten,
Had a very cute tabby flat
On the forty-first floor.
Joseph - yeah, yeah, cats rule and . . .

They never asked my permission.
They think I am their doorman.
They are right.

William's Whimsical Words:

Thank goodness they haven't evicted us by asserting the right of evident domain.
