What if your parents
Gave you a fish in a bowl?
But one day your brother
Swallowed it whole?
Would you care
If his hair turned blue?
What if he got sick
And blamed it on you?
Caring for pets
Can be lots of fun.
But a snake that gets lost
May upset everyone.
A dog that is rowdy
Can turn over a chair
And be double trouble
For you, everywhere!

Come read some funny
Poems about pets.
So you'll know what to do
If your carpet gets wet!
Learn how a rabbit
Can get fat and lazy.
And why your collie
Named William
Prefers to smell daisies.

Read Who Swallowed Harold?
And you'll want an ant farm.
Or a bulldog named Boris,
Or a gerbil with charm.
You'll ask for a guinea pig
Who can jump up for joy.
You'll beg for a ferret
Instead of a toy.
