If you love something, set it free.

Thatís what they said in the í60s.

So when she broke up with her boyfriend

And had to move to a new apartment

Where they didnít take pets

She drove Misty to a distant neighborhood

Way out where the nice houses were

Kissed the upside-down orange ĎMí between her eyes

And set her down in a big front yard.

Somebody will adopt her, she thought

As Misty began a life of freedom

That ended four weeks later

When a thin orange cat

On the trail of a bag of fresh garbage

Crossed the street in front of a car

That was going much too fast.
