Feline Upholsterers

Well,
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

Now
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

So,
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
