The Adopted Pet
I am not housebroken and I will always bite the vet
Never has been spoken by any adopted pet;
I will always bark and bark, as I patrol my new house at night
So beware all intruders! I am ready to protect and fight.
Rules are these! So, I will tell them to you my new master
Remember them well and there will never be a disaster,
Scraps of food that you drop on the floor they are mine to eat
So, watch where you step, or I will trip you or nip at your feet.
If you ever neglect or forget me while you are out, or at the store
When you return home, there might be a surprise upon your floor,
Beware all people and insects that will ever enter into my house
Especially you little vermin; I will chase you down…. little mouse.
I will not be your pet! But, I will be your best friend and your buddy
Please, always love and care for me even when my paws are muddy,
And understand this, I am your child, so with me please don't be upset
These are the words! That have been spoken, by the adopted pet.
