All I Need Is My Teddy

You Think I Am Just A Pet

How mistaken can you be

I am a friend who keeps all your secrets

I sleep half of every day so I can play with you when you come home

I greet you at the door and jump up and down like a dog

I eat boring dry cat food when you eat chicken,steak and ribs

I don't complain even though it is unfair and down right wrong

You let me sleep on the end of the bed by your smelly feet

How would you like it if you were just given a fake mouse to chase

What thrill is that even a dog gets a toy that squeaks

You pat me and wake me up when I am sleeping

How annoying

I don't even get Christmas presents under the tree

Every time I go under to take a look

You grab me quick as if I was going to bite

Insult after insult but you never hear me complain

You kick me out of the bedroom late at night

Then I don't know what happens next

I hear moaning so I come to the rescue thinking someone is hurt

I scratch at the door and then it opens and you spray me with water

You must be a real jerk

But during the day

I curl up into teddy and he is a real friend to me

He holds me in his warm paws just like mother use to do

I go to sleep and that is my life

I know what you got for Christmas

The coolest cell phone there is all wrapped

A five hundred dollar expensive gift

Well when you were in work I pulled it out

Gave it to Teddy and we dropped it in the toilet

We both flushed and down the drain it went

Now we are laying on the bed warm and toasty

Side by side

Resting and you will never know where the cell phone did go

So next year you might just want to be a little nicer and Teddy and I will be nicer too

It is all up to you

Because Teddy and I are pals and you have seen nothing yet

Until we get a really nice Chrismas gift you won't get one either

Merry Christmas and boy you will be surprised

When you get nothing and Teddy and I smile wide

DREAM ON...There are two types of " teddy " I obviously was thinking you were into wearing "teddies" while your wife was at work..then got further down and started analyzing the poem more in depth...now I realize I know the famous "teddy" family in Vermont..quite a few of them are "real characters"...seriously loved the poem...please excuse the humor..bit twisted I understand..

kj force Don't worry sometimes only Teddy understands what I say.Thanx for still reading and hanging in there.You have a 50/50 chance of being right.My mind goes faster than my fingers can type.So I blame it on my damn fingers.(lol)The thing I like about writing is people can see it any way they want.It might be funnier another way.All I am glad is that someone reads anything I write.My thoughts and prayers are with you.So get better real soon.

I don't have a cat but did as a child and Peter the Rabbit was my Teddy. I truly got a chuckle about the cell phone down the tiolet and all that time I blamed my two sister. Awesome so loved your story, thank you for sharing
