National Pets' Day

‘Tomorrow’s National Pets’ Day,'
      Miss Rogers told us all:
‘And you’re allowed to bring your pet,
But leave him in the hall.’

So Malcolm brought his little cat 
    Whilst Jacob took his snake.
I had a tortoise and a dog  –
   Now which one should I take?

Mary brought her brown hamster 
     And Edith brought her horse 
But what on earth did Sammy bring?
     His tiger, yes, of course.

His T I G E R!!!’ everyone exclaimed!
    They rushed back to the hall.
What had that greedy tiger had done?
       Yes - he’d eaten one and all!
