For the last six months or so I have been taking care of my grandson’s cat while he moves and gets settled. The cat is a tabby named Kit. Yes, a cat named Kit.

We get along very well and he is the best cat in the whole world. (I can say that because my cat, TazMo, died years ago at the old age of 17). If it weren’t for the fact that I am allergic to most pets this would be a great thing. He spends all day trying to rub his scent on me and I spend most of the day trying to wash it off!

It was on one of the more boring days with me just looking at the cat – and he looking at me – that I came up with the idea for a poem. In two seconds I thought about making it a children’s story – that turned into lyrics and you know me – a song. I actually read it to him now while I pet him. But I also decided it would be fun to read my poetry for a pod post. Here is my first, and out of order Poetry POD reading called, ‘The Cat”……

Pet the Cat

“The Cat” © MSK 11/26/2022

If you are standing around
With nothing to do:
Pet the Cat.
When both your hands are empty
Your mind is a blank.

When the weather is bad
Everyone’s feeling blue,
Pet the Cat.
If it’s a beautiful day
And you don’t know who to thank:
Pet the Cat.

You got nothin’ else better to do.
The only one you’re foolin’ is you.
So much wasted time at that.
You should have Pet the Cat.

Alone and feeling down
The day just won’t end?
Pet the Cat.
In for the holidays
Relatives are such a bore.

When you open your mouth
All you do is offend.
Pet the Cat.
The story seems longer
Than 100 times before,
Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat.

Everyone is snoring
You can’t get to sleep?
Pet the Cat.
Just want to close your eyes
And forget about the day?

Can’t get out of this one
Dug yourself in too deep.
Pet the Cat.
Want to be noble
And look clever and wise?
Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat. Pet the Cat.

You got nothin’ else better to do.
The only one you’re foolin’ is you.
So much wasted time at that.
You should have Pet the Cat.

The lyrics for “The Border” were posted earlier. There is also a little story to this song using the link above.

…….. for the nerds and geeks in the audience, I created the song in Bandlab’s Sonar (formerly Cakewalk Sonar). This is not a commercial but if you are interested in recording, podcasts, audio to video and a bunch more, BandLab bought Sonar out of bankruptcy and is making this program free to download and use!!! Argh! I paid hundreds of dollars each year to keep current and have new toys.

I am not against commercials or someone making a bit of money but there really is no connection here. If you want to download Sonar, search for BandLab and hit the download button. It is a powerful multi-track recording program with sounds and plug-ins ready to use. I could give you the link but that would seem like I am pushing it lol!

Here is my new song, “The Border”:
