MFTS-The Cat’s Lament

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Finish the story begins with:  “Now this is living the life of Riley.” Yes, Barbara, another fun challenge! Here is my poetic response.

Now this is living the life of Riley.

Yep, Riley’s the name

And relaxin’s the game

Twentyfour-seven it’s the same

Livin’ the life of Riley.

Now this is living the life of Riley.

When I tire of counting sheep

I’ve got appointments to keep

And miles to go before I sleep

And enjoy the life of Riley.

Now though living the life of Riley

Seems a dream  achieved

Don’t be deceived

It’s not all you’d believe

If you’re given the life of Riley.

Accept living the life of Riley

And you have to accept

That to be kept

Leads to regret

That the life of Riley’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
