Dauphy: Lovely day Hobbo.
Hobbo: Indeed it is, beautiful.
Dauphy: Have you had your jabs yet?
Hobbo: Yes, both of them.
Dauphy: Do I need vaccinating?
Hobbo: Well yes, every year, but not against covid.
Dauphy: Why not?
Hobbo: Don’t worry, dogs can’t catch it. I’ve written a poem I think you will like this morning.
Dauphy: I like most of them…
When children are yearning a pet,
Choose with care, or you'll live to regret.
Fishes, you don't need to walk,
Parrots of course, love to talk.
If your neighbour continually rants,
Buy a tom cat to crap on his plants.
Instead of a horse, get a donkey,
And claim it's a pony, but wonky.
All rodents, like rats, come in cheap
But beavers are buggers to keep.
Consider a fluffy white rabbit,
Though they eat their own shit, dirty habit.
Elephants, I don't recommend,
The things that they touch, tend to bend.
Monkeys are good for a laugh,
Or, not scared of heights, a giraffe.
Not much room, try a budgie, or frog
But the best pet by miles is a dog.
