Royalty by Jake Waller
They prance their palace with poise
Feign disinterest in all of their toys
Show balance defying belief
and landings with hardly a noise
Relaxed, they stretch out, but pause
Without warning can unleash their claws
That keen hunting instinct remains
though they happily now live indoors
We don’t always know when they’re there
As of only some secrets they share
Independence couples with affection
Enough always to show that they care
Royalty by Jake Waller is another stunning poem which accurately describes cats royal behaviour. The way Jake Waller talks about the movements and demeanour of cats is very relatable, but the poem is elegant and beautiful to read.
The end of the poem states that as royal and upper cats may act, they do still care and the appreciate everything you do for them.
