"The Kids and Pets Thing"

They’ll buy a hamster for their ten-year-old,

But dislike squirrels, field mice and rats.

Sane adults only go for dogs and cats.

Rabbits, maybe. No birds or lizards: That’s

Just crazy – but some folk will not be told.

They bought a gerbil for their eight-year-old.

That’s not really a rat – and, come on, eight?

Mind you, Tom did suggest they buy a mate

For "Johnny". Bloody hell, that’s not a great

Idea, son. No, that pet shop have sold

Us all the pets they’re going to. You’re old

Enough now, both of you – so just be told!
