Feline Upholsterers

Here I am, it’s a fact
Cat claws are exactly like upholstery tacks
Expertly placed up and down my back

I guess,
They all drifted in and without guilt
Pinned me in under my grandma’s quilt
Like tiny hardworking rumplestiltskins

I’m wide awake, deafened by the purrs
Of these expert feline upholsterers
I have to pee so bad I can’t think up a suitable curse

Looks like
The sunrise breaks in awhile
Who knew they were so versatile
I inhale and close my eyes and merge into the textile

Here I am, now a part of the furniture
When I’ll be released only their stomachs know for sure
Wish I had a camera, this would make a funny picture
