Funny Style Cat

there once was a funny style cat
who used to visit me at the pad I had up on Grant Avenue
at the bottom of a 40 degree concrete walkway
with the grass growing up through the crack
but the reason he was so funny
which is really sad when you're a funny style cat
is that he just sat around all the time
talking up all the time
to do whatever it was that he was going to be doing
hanging me up
like I was a funny style cat
