Weighty Thoughts by Kay

Have you ever wondered what would happen
If our domestic cats
Had opposing thumbs?
If they could open up the doors
Of cupboards and refrigerators?
If they could help themselves
To tuna fish?

And dogs - I watched my neighbors riding bikes
With their dog, Jake, panting, right behind
I read his thoughts (I do that well, you know)
“These folks of mine they just don’t understand.
All week long they’re lazy, sit around, won’t play,
And then on Saturday they say ‘Let’s exercise!'
But do they walk or run so’s I can match their pace?
Oh, no, they ride their bikes, start off down hill
Expecting me to run along behind, and never think
That I’m a dog that needs to stretch
Before I sprint!”
