My Kitty Likes My Goldfish
Buy the book The Biggest Burp Ever
My kitty likes my goldfish.
My kitty likes my mice.
My kitty likes my parakeets.
She thinks they’re all so nice.
The way she mews so sweetly,
the way she sits and stares,
I’d have to say it’s obvious
how much my kitty cares.
She doubtlessly adores them
and thinks so highly of them.
She treats them so attentively
it’s clear that she must love them.
But, tragically, they disappeared
the other afternoon.
My kitty seems so lonely now.
I hope they come back soon.
