Pets do the funniest things


Pets do the funniest things
As do their owners with their pets
Pets do the craziest things
As do pet-owners at their pet's vets.

Our neighbours once kept a duck
They walked it on a lead
Their tortoise had us all thunderstruck
When I found it in a lane muddied.
3yrs missing was we dumbstruck.

Once as a farm hand
Twenty, heifers' climbed into a hayloft
Twenty feet high aloft
In the air and me I was their cowhand.

And on Facebook bemused
I watched a dog riding a bike
Then another in a photo oozed-
Confidence as a pillion-passenger
I guess that driver could have been confused
For being that dogs road manager.

But likes I said:
Pets do the funniest things
As do their owners with their pets
Pets do the craziest things
As do pet-owners at their pet's vets.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
