P E T S
By Josie Whitehead
What sort of pets do you like best:
The active ones or those who rest?
The little ones or larger ones,
The timid ones or daring ones?
What sort of pet do you prefer -
The one who barks or those who purr?
The fluffy ones or scruffy ones?
The lazy ones or crazy ones?
I like the one who loves me most,
Who’s always there to share my toast:
The waggy one, the shaggy one,
The ‘take-me-for-a-walkie’ one.
