When your Dad was a little boy,
He had some unusual pets.
He'd bring them home in cardboard boxes,
Old tin cans and nets.

There were lizards, guppies, June bugs,
Snakes and birds and dogs.
And Granny wasn't too happy,
When tadpoles turned to frogs.

A turtle that vomited, he wanted to buy,
And once he tamed a butterfly
To sit and flutter on his finger,
While we all wondered why it would linger.

Just wait and see if your Dad giggles,
When you bring home something that wiggles.

Happy little poem. I see the talent also has been passed down.

tadpoles to frogs - a metaphor for a guy who jumps around a lot? I think so, Mr. Toe. neat poem.
