Envy

Every 3 pm
It lies on its furry back
Its tail does not wag
Its eyes are closed carelessly
Its legs spread apart
Exposing hairless belly
A peaceful slumber
How he envies his best friend
How he longs to nap
To rest his head for a while
On a soft pillow
Maybe dream a few good dreams
So with a loud shout
He snaps it to wakefulness
Now they’re both awake
Both miserable and awake
