    A Cat's Prayer to Bast

    As I lay me down to sleep
    I pray to Bast my soul to keep,
    I pray to Bast my soul to take,
    And transport it to the sandy lands
    Where my forbears worshipped were,
    Where my ancient kin were much revered
    And where the cat first learned to purr.

    As I pad on velvet feet
    I pray Bast will give me mice to eat,
    And as I use my litter tray
    I ask that she will find me play,
    In her bright heaven where all cats,
    Are stroked by Bast's most blessed hands,
    And bask and gambol in her care,
    Remembering Egypt's ancient sands.

    As I knead upon your knees,
    I hope that Bast is greatly pleased
    To see her child at rest and play,
    Fed and cared for every day,
    And when I reach that glorious place
    And gaze upon her feline face,
    I'll ask that Bast will grant you grace
    To join me in eternal play.
