Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
I got a pet the other day,
Something to help pass time away.
Although I didn't really need it,
I could well afford to feed it...
It seemed a normal thing to do.
How ungrateful it became!
This animal I thought so tame.
Instead of heeding my commands,
It growled and glowered at my hands
And barked continually, too.
It wouldn't give my face a lick.
I could not teach it any trick.
Although I was the perfect master
It's training was a huge disaster.
I was at wit's end!
I guess I'll have to let it go.
I really learned a lesson, though.
Oh, what agony begets
One who tries at taming pets -
I'll never get married again.
