A pet, a pet oh please for me
A dog, a cat, a fish or three

Why oh why I don’t understand
Are not animals all over the land?

What no pet well that won’t do
Who is going to chew my shoe?

A litter box, what is that?
Come on Mom please a cat

Clean the tank why not a bowl
Flush the fish down that hole

So no pets are in our house
Maybe I can find a mouse

Is this a prayer that God will hear?
Honor your parents listen dear

It’s their home, you’ll have one soon
Then you can whistle your own tune

Have some fish, a dog for you
Maybe a cat and hamster too

Gee they smell and make a mess
Also thought they’d cost much less

Wow what is it about this pet
The unconditional love we get

Like that of my Savior true
Glad He doesn’t bark and chew

(smile) This is the cry of so many children.
I like your short lines, your word choices, and style.
Well done.
