'Partment (Children)

Poem By C.J. Heck

I wish I had a puppy...
wish I had a kitten, too,
but Mommy says our 'partment
is too small to have a zoo.

She said someday when we move
I'll get to have my wish,
but just for now be happy
with old Harold, he's my fish.

But old Harold seems so lonely,
he just swims around all day.
He can't chase a ball inside with me
and he can't go out and play.

I wondered if he's sad
'cause he is all alone...
but every time I ask him
his mouth keeps saying 'no'...'no'...'no'.

I always thought fish and hamsters were lonely, sweet poem.
this sounds familiar! Thanks for your kind comment, C.J.
