Gemma Animal Index 2 Animal Index 3

I’ve had many pets across the years

And when they’ve died, I’ve shed my tears.

    My list shows pets not right for me

    And here’s the list for you to see:


A slithery, sliding snake comes first,

But perhaps it’s not amongst the worst.

    Massive spiders make me shake,

    Perhaps more than a slithery snake.


Third on my list?  The crocodile,

With open mouth and friendly smile -

    But a crocodile, with jaws held wide

    Would hope that I’d soon be inside!


No scorpions and centipedes

Or those which run around at speed.

    And keep mosquitoes from me please.

    In taking blood they spread disease.


Our family cats are friendly pets,

But lions; tigers? They are threats!

    A jellyfish?   No, not for me,

    So leave them swimming in the sea.


My favourite pet’s my dog, of course,

But I also like a friendly horse.

   Yes guinea pigs and budgerigars -

    Not pets that bite or are bizarre.
