Mastering the Situation

What the hell is that?
Did I catch it from a toilet seat
Or get it from the cat!
I've been pushed and poked,
Tapped and stroked
Examined in every way,
But I've got you for the rest of my life
Each and every day.
I'll try and learn to spell your name
As long as you know mine,
If you promise not to hurt too much
I think we'll get on fine.
When I'm with friends just go to sleep
No one will know you're there,
But if you decide to wander off
I don't think I will care.
