“My Pet” by Louise Pocock

My Pet


I beg my mum for my very own pet.

She winks at me and says “you bet!”


But – it must not purr

Or have soft fur.

It must not bark

Or like the park.


No pets with a beak

That tweet (or shriek).

No pets that peak

Or sneak or squeak.


It can’t have hair;

Can’t need much care;

Can’t be boring;

Mind the flooring!


At the store I search until dark…

Mum’s going to love my new pet shark!
