Alley Cat

from by DIM JIM



You are a Siamese
and I'm an alley cat
who only knows to scratch.
How can I love you back?

You tried to love me,
but I can't live indoors.
Now there's no coming back
for this alley cat.

And every mouse I killed, I laid upon your doorstep.
But they always seemed to turn your stomach sick.
You were hardly thrilled to have me in your debt.
When you said "we're through" how my heart plummeted.

If you don't want me
I suppose I'm free to roam.
I have no home.
I guess I'm free to roam.
I have no home.
I guess I'm free to roam.
