Alley Cat #POETRY #DIANAMARYSHARPTON #CATURDAY W/Peggy Lee - "The Alley Cat Song" #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction:


When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me. 

 ~ Erma Bombeck

Alley Cat


I no longer am a venal or capricious alley cat!
Clambering fence posts; seeking a mid-night snack,
groping trash cans until the break of dawn,
singing “meows”; parting sillage spawned.

Because, 
I let this go; as twilight turns silver into gold,
now, this does not mean I’m freakish or old,
it’s being an alley cat that I longing bemoan.

Ah, yes!
Rock hard, sweating, panting,
I made it happen; you see,
all that living between my knees.

Looking back; it’s the choices I made,
and the breathing I did.
If asked why?
I would probably do it all over again.

When finally,
I opened my eyes into winds that blew,
realizing; I wanted more with the likes of you,
no longer bouncing about from ship to shore.

For wit; I’m, Tom the Alley Cat, no more!

Let's have some fun folks, after all we are who we are! The music video that I have selected to accompany this poem is titled Peggy Lee - "The Alley Cat Song" (2) - stereo 1963and it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Apr 2, 2011 by VinylVinnie60.

I have added the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"The Alley Cat Song" (3)
He goes on the prowl each night,
Like an alley cat.
Looking for some new delight, 
Like an alley cat.

You know, she can't trust him out of sight,
And there's no doubt of that.
He just don't know wrong from right, 
Like an alley cat.

He meets them.. 
And loves them..
And loves them... 
Like the "Catsanova" does. 

I mean that's no way to treat a pal,
She should tell him "Scat!" 
Aren't you sorry for that gal, 
With her alley cat? 

He meets them.. 
And loves them..
And loves them.. 
Like the "Catsanova" does.

I mean that's no way to treat a pal,
She should tell him "Scat!" 
Aren't you sorry for that gal, 
With her alley cat? 

Yeah, that's the sad, sad tale of a lonesome frail.

Yeah, that's the sad, sad tale of a lonesome frail and her alley cat.

Oh Yes! Meow....
Peace and Love Always, Diana


Amante hablar conmigo... Te extraño
