Let’s Get a Pet
By Brenda Short
I think that we should get a pet A guinea pig, or better yet A dog, an English man’s best friend Faithful and loving to the end A loyal hound to care for us And guard our home with little fuss Now why would you suggest a pet A dog at that. I’m quite upset They bark and bite and make a mess And it would cause me lots of stress The hair they shed, the drool and such The poop, the pee, it’s much too much Oh, now you’re being most absurd You haven’t listened to a word I’ll train the dog and I’ll take care You’ll never even know it’s there I’ll walk the dog, pick up the poo You wouldn’t have a thing to do It’s not enough, you’ll soon forget And I’ll be left to walk the pet No dog I say. We’ll get a cat I’ve made my mind up that is that A little kitten, soft and cute That cuddles, purrs and licks my foot You’re kidding! what is wrong with you If dogs are out, then cats are too Cats stink of pee and smell of fish You want to get a cat…you wish! They shed hair too and that’s not all They barf and cack their gross hair balls Well, I can see it in your eyes It seems there is no compromise You want a dog, I want a cat So, we’ll have neither, that is that A baby would be much more fun But messier than either one Let’s not go there…just forget I ever dared to mention…pet!
