My frolicking kitty likes to pounce in the night
As I lay still in my bed sound asleep
And in a pleasant dream.
She stalks and leaps up to my short height
Startling me with heart pounding fright
While scampering in and out of sight
Until she lands upon on my knees
In playful and joyous glee.
All the while I try to ignore my tugging, frolicking kitty
As I still attempt to slumber ever so peacefully.
With keen eyes, She darts to the left and then to the right
Batting my fingers in raptured delight
And gnawing my toes as if they’re little squirming mice
As now I toss and turn ever so restlessly
Knowing that a good night’s sleep
Has eluded me.
