Animal Crime?

Discriminately speaking,

Said the possum from bed.

There’s a fly on the wall,

And I think that’s he’s dead!


How can I sleep,

Surrounded by crime?

Murder and mayhem,

Time after time!


There’s much to be done,

To save all our lives!

But first clean the wall,

It’s giving me hives.


Doctor, oh Doctor,

Have you got a cure?

Things are not right,

Of this, I am sure.


There’s a wolf at my door,

And he wants to get in!

He wants me for dinner!

His cooking’s a sin.


Now the rabbits are fine,

Not a hair out of place.

Which makes me suspicious,

I think there’s a case.


Fraud and deceit,

They play all the time!

I don’t trust the cuteness,

I think it’s a crime . . .


How weary my soul,

With this evil about.

I’ll go back to sleep,

And just cover my snout.

    Makes you wonder what their world is like Pam, they probably have all the problems we have. Great poem 😀
    I too hear them argue, I hear them sing, I even have to clean up, the after effects of their…ahem…sin 🤣

    You are just full of whimsy today! Most welcome on a dark, dreary, rainy day here. You are Queen of the twist…not Chubby Checker’s Twist! 🤗

    Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh.
