For A Day - Poem by Bill Simmons

A kitty cat
A thing like that
Is what I'd like to be

For a day
I'd like to play
In the top of the highest trees

And if I fall
I'd worry none
I'd land on all four feet

But I don't think
I'd like it none
The things that cats do eat

But for a day
I'd need no bath
For cats do clean themselves

On second thought
I'm really glad
I've always been myself.
