To be a Cat


If in the afterlife I can come back
I would love to be a cat
To sleep and eat the day away
Waking up only to play
Perfecting how to catch a rat
A piece of yarn I will attack
On a lap Iíd sit and purr
Making sure I shed my fur
Whether it be a tabby cat
Or purebred Siamese
It is my head  I want you to pat
But donít pull my tail please
Just give my something good to eat
And a warm place to sleep
A little catnip once in a while
Iíll be nothing like a crocodile
A little cuddle, a little rub
Just donít put me in a tub
To lounge all day, waiting for you to come home
If you let me out I promise not to roam
Iíll be back in the morning
For my food and my nap
That I will take while on your lap

 Fleeting World
"Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream."
-from the Diamond Sutra, translated by : A. F. Price -- found in Teachings of The Buddha, edited by Jack Kornfield
