Poem: Asking for Love

Across our path
Came a cat
That cat, we’d never met him
Idled up and sideled up
Lingering and meowing
That cat asked us to pet him
Then he rolled over
And asked for more
We gladly submittted
And gave a kitty massage
From head to toe

That cat’s not a fraidy cat
That cat knows where it’s at

If love’s what you want
Love’s what you’ll get
People walking by
Just lean down and pet

It might be as easy as that
Follow the lead of the cat
If you want love
Ask for it

About the poem:
On our Sunday walk, this cat (with the nametag “Dee Oh Gee”) came right up to us, wanted to be petted. Made friends with both of us, then rolled over and hung around until we tired of rubbing his ears and his belly. Why mope around feeling unloved? Maybe like the cat, we can just ask someone, hug please!
