Crosswords

It's never the news

You are concerned with

Or the funnies

Or the ads


You couldn't care less

For the op Ed

Or the fads


But when I open to

The crossword

Then suddenly it changes


With my pen poised

You decide its time

To sit upon the pages


While I'm trying to

Work through the answer

To 'one down'


You see the opportune time

To come and wander 'round


And plant your furry

Rear end on

The middle of the spread


Unfurl your tail,

Flop down,

And cover the puzzle

With your head.


Only crosswords

Seem to draw you in

This way


To make you Bogart me

When I'm enjoying

Word play


It's a weird, linguistic magnet

Which you can't resist-




That you're compelled

To sleep on to of-


You and it can't coexist


Yet, you don’t expect

Cross words


You presume

Just strokes and pats


As you replace

What I was doing

With the fluffiness

Of cats


But I might

Just have to lift an edge

And shuffle you to the side


As I've spied around

Your furry paw

The answer to

Question five.
