Prayer of the Cat

Prayer of the Cat
You were wise
to give me
Nine lives, Lord;
Eight for learning my mistakes,
The ninth for Thee!
Don’t be fooled by my independence!
I still need a leg to rub against;
A lap on which to twirl;
You are my saucer of cream;
All a cat’s dream:
  simple and pure;
O Lord, don’t rise up or stir;
For need thee all whiskered-quiet
I purr.
