I haven’t posted a poem for a long time. Some people might say I’m not posting a POEM now, within the strictest meaning of the term. You know what those people can do, don’t you? IF THEY DON’T LIKE IT, THEY CAN LUMP IT, THAT’S WHAT!
ANYWAY, here’s a poem. It’s a song, really. I hear a tune to it. You tune might be different than mine. That’s okay. Your penguin would be different, too.
I Want A Penguin For A Pet
I want a penguin for a pet!
(a penguin for a pet)
How cute can you get?
(cute can you get)
The little ones are fuzzy and the big ones are slick –
They waddle and they wobble – Just to see ’em gets me tickled.
Let me have a penguin!
Gotta have a penguin!
I’ll raise him from a baby –
Don’t say “No” or “Maybe” –
Let me have a penguin for a pet!!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about someone who has a penguin for a pet.
