Going Up – So Easy!

 

You say I’m looking really cross,

but is it so much of a surprise

when this big predicament

has cut me down to size.

Going up is so easy,

with my claws I simply run;

this time I’ve gone up way too far.

It really is no fun.

Look down there, there’s quite a crowd

that are witness to my plight,

a few with their own dogs, of course,

who really take delight

in seeing me perched up this tree

like some exotic bird.

I wish they would all take off home,

not say another word.

I’ll make my way down slowly,

I’ll slip a bit, then drop;

my progress is ungainly

but I’m further from the top.

I stretch and take a tumble,

on my belly I will crawl

and when I pick a too thin branch

I sure do take a fall.

I feel the ground beneath my feet,

relief floods, that’s a fact.

A shame that I could not get down

with my dignity intact.
