Calico Cat

calico cat on my bed stand,

nightly vigil she keeps as I sleep

to protect me from unseen;

never does she purr or meow–

quietly she watches as she sits;

forever beside my bed I will keep her:

eyes have been replaced with buttons,

fake fur becoming thin in places,

still she remains my protector
