Birthing Cats

If I could have your child,
I would. Alas, I don’t have
The right chromosomes
Nor anatomical tools.
Instead, I will buy
You a kitten, stick him under
My shirt, and allow
Him to crawl out to greet you.
I’ll even let you name him–
As long as it isn’t anything silly
Like Lando Catrisian or Tiger.
