All my friends are having babies
Yet I don’t even have a partner.
It’s not like I have rabies
And some days I get so lonely.
Then one day I was in the mall
Looking at all the happy people walk by.
It was never my plan, not at all,
Until I saw you and I knew.
I kept you in a room for a month,
Visiting every day at five.
Gave you 2 meals a day, even steak once!
On me you needed to trust and rely.
Soon you got a bed in my room
And could roam the house at will.
Only when I went out did you know gloom
And await my return
This is how you train a cat.
This is how you make them yours.
Running away-I’ll have none of that!
Life for you will be indoors.
They say that if you love something set it free
But I took you, somewhat unethically,
So I doubt you’d come back to me
Until I’ve kept you here
And you’ve learned to love me.
