A cat is in charge, even when asleep.
See his next poem: Coby is Awake
(It has the same rhyming structure as this poem)
Coby is sleeping
Coby is sleeping, so we must go creeping,
Quietly around the house for now.
For if he awakes, such a noise he makes,
That all you will hear is his meow!
A cat he may be, but for our harmony,
I let him sleep for as long as he wants to.
I know that I give in, and I let him win,
I will admit he is in charge of what I do.
He can be at my feet, until I take a seat,
Then upon my lap he will stake his claim.
He will want to be fed, then curl up on the bed,
But without him life would not be the same.
He knows how to care, he is always there,
And his loving nature brightens my days.
He will start to purr, as I stroke his fur,
So I forgive him his arrogant ways.
