Janice Canerdy: At Your Service

Be patient, please. I heard you call.
I'm in the kitchen getting lunch.
To please you, dear, I will not stall.
I know it's been a while since brunch.

I've turned on Garfield for you, hon.
I know you love it; I do too.
This afternoon we'll have such fun,
but first I have this feast for you.

You loved each morsel, I can see.
Let's have a nap; then we'll go play.
I'll watch you run and climb a tree.
We'll have a bright and lovely day.

To thank me you meow and purr,
unlike the other friends I've had.
To all your wishes, I defer . . .
A flea? So where's that collar, lad?
