Michelle M. Mead
The world’s best Dictators, Drill sergeants, Organizers, Have nothing on you, My diminutive ruler, Demanding of me, Only the highest expectations, Not a moment’s slack, I’ve seen that Whip’s flick, That mouth, Oh, that yelling mouth, If it wasn’t So darn CUTE, So furry and sweet, Releasing its meows Of frustration, I don’t suppose I’d adore, Being told my every move, By you, Supreme feline master, Of my daily rituals.
