Animal Poems

Don’t buy a puppy for Christmas –

     They like Christmas at home with their Mum

And puppies can’t tell you their feelings

     For unlike human beings, they’re dumb.


Don’t buy a kitten for Christmas –

      They are not children’s toys as you’ll know –

And leaving his brothers and sisters

    Would be for the kitten a blow.


If you were a poor little puppy,

      Or a kitten or any small pet,

If removed by some huge human strangers.

     I know you’d miss Mum and would fret.      


Pets aren’t good presents for Christmas –

      A new home could cause them some fear –

For Christmas, you know, can be noisy -

     A day filled with laughter and cheer.


On a day far from these celebrations

     Bring a pet to a home quiet and still -

And they’ll soon be one of your family –

     Oh yes, I’m quite sure that they will.
