I Have It All

I am the lone lion of my home  not lonely
but self-contained
everything here   is for me   alone

scratching post   furniture    food
supplied by one          I keep away

until I want    the warmth     of his lap,
leaping up I settle fur       and stay

purr to sleep     as if he were  a bed
allow the idea that I        am a pet

but I own him     let no one    forget
why I am held so dear         by all

I am my own self without doubt
Cat without apology         or excuse
the universe is here    just for my use.
