He said, This is a song about my cat,
but then, when you think about it,
aren’t all songs really about our cats?
We, the audience, thought about it,
and finally came to the conclusion that
No, we’re afraid not.
Not all songs are about cats.

Bohemian Rhapsody is not about cats.
Creep is not about cats.
Del Shannon’s Runaway isn’t about cats
and neither is Kanye’s.
Most of the Runaways’ songs aren’t about cats, either,
even though they are sometimes about pussy.
Hell, Memory from Cats isn’t even about cats.

To be honest, we had to admit,
we the audience are not very clear
on what you were trying to say.
May I sing my song?
The artist asked testily.
We let him.
It was, indeed, a song about his cat.
So was the rest of his set.
We didn’t understand what was going on
at all.
