A Cat's Enlistment Oath

I solemnly promise
To defend my food bowl
From every enemy
Foreign and domestic
I will obey no one
While I rule this house.
(Note: I was preparing a Veterans Day poem to post tomorrow, and I remembered the oath I took when I enlisted in the Army Reserves.  I compared the unselfishness of veterans with the selfishness of my cat.  I hope no one is offended.)
