A Cat in Every Space

I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I go to bed at night
they sleep upon my face.

Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.

I've never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I'll have a cat in every space
Until I'm gray and old.

For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features.

Now take my house away from me
and place me in a tent
I'll have a cat in every space
And still I'll be content.
