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.

AhHA! The first mistake was in calling it/her a pet! My other surprise is that you wanted a TAME one! LOL. Good job!

The Petís Retort

He came into my pet store one day
looking for a golden retriever.
In football terms, he was no tight end,
so must have been a receiver.

He said he wanted companionship
with minimal fuss or bother
and feeling sorry for such as he
I took him home to meet my father.

Two days of wedded bliss had we
till his socks began to stink
his jockeys lay under the bed
his dirty dishes in the sink!

He didnít work, not a lick
he said he hurt his hips
so he sat in front of my TV
eating salsa and some chips!

At night he cooed and stroked me
hoping for a little action
little did I know he was not
into giving me satisfaction!

If I had a receipt of purchase
Iíd take him back to the store
trade him in, get my refund
and get another boar!
