Quid Pro Quo

images-18
I gave her quid
she gave pro quo
my new pet squid
she loves me so
she gives me hugs
with all her arms
with gentle tugs
she shows her charms
she loves me so
I’ve said before
she lets me know
she loves me more
she sucks my neck
she sucks my sides
but what the heck
she goes and hides
behind the chair
behind the shed
but she’s still there
I see her head
she likes to think
she’s one of us
she writes with ink
and takes the bus
there’s jealousy
from my dear wife
she fails to see
and gives me strife
she thinks I pay
too much attention
she doesn’t say
she fails to mention
she thinks I’ve gone
right off the grid
suggests a swan
instead of squid
but that would hurt
she’d get upset
if I did flirt
with another pet
I have to go
my squid awaits
she lets me know
that we’re just mates
but I know truth
I really know
my squid called Ruth
she loves me so!

This lady deserves a special place in the world of WordPress.

Do go and look at her blog. Laughter guaranteed, or your money back!

Sometimes some guests are so desperate for their trip to Kenya to be authentically African they lose all sense of perspective. Pointing at the bow and arrow hanging on the canvas wall; “Is that African?” At the hand-stitched, oversized leather-and-bead ceremonial necklace; “…and that?” Closely examining the stretched hide shield and rusted spears; “…what about this?” […]

Who’s the animal here?

Does a Fly ever contemplate the meaning of life?

Does an Ox ever say that he’s proud of his wife?

Does an Elephant ponder which fork, or which knife?

Does mankind really care for their plight?

 

Do the Chickens complain when the Cock starts to crow?

Do the Pigs grunt with glee when they play in the snow?

Does the Budgie feel sick as she swings to and fro?

Does mankind really care for their plight?

 

Do the Lions feel safe when they first spot a man?

Do the Antelope know that they’re part of the plan?

Does the hunting continue with never a ban?

Does mankind really care for their plight?

 

Does an Ostrich consider a lie-in today?

Do the Kids ever think, “We won’t bother to play”?

Do Giraffes get a pain in the neck every day?

Does mankind really care for their plight?

 

Do the Horses, and Cows, and the Goats, and the Sheep

feel that all life is meaningless, all life is cheap?

Do they think of us kindly as they drift off to sleep?

I very much doubt that they might!

Excuse me Sir, Can I please come past?

The Cob was extra vigilant this morning

and, although he still found time to complete his ablutions, he kept a wary eye on me, and lashed out at those less wary passers by.

The Cygnets were their normal lovely, fluffy selves but were especially quiet.

Now there are only eight. Yesterday afternoon one of their sisters was attacked and killed by a dog.

Lets hope that the rest manage to survive to adulthood!
