Cats don't care what dogs think
they just look down and sorta wink.
Perch themselves way up high
the dog barks and starts to cry.
It's really not fair, those agile cats
hiding in places just like rats.
The dog wants to play, join in the fun
chase that cat, make it run.
But cats care less, don't need to play fair
like to tease, don't have a care.
Poor dog sits and wonders why?
Sly old cat naps with a sigh.
Dog keeps guard, waiting for a twitch
cat doesn't move, not even for an itch.
The game goes on, cat unaware
the dog just pleads, please care.
