Can't Catch You by Andrew Evzona

Can't Catch You

 

How did you just come in the house? 

You came in even quieter than a mouse!

I didn't even notice that you were here

At least, you didn't make me jump with fear

 

You always like to do your own thing

Though, I never hear you whistle or sing

You move around, aimlessly, to and fro

With several rooms where you can go 

 

You seem to have, totally, no responsibility

It must be wonderful to be footloose and free 

At times, I can't catch you no matter how I try 

Who called you "Daddy Longlegs", you cranefly?
