Pocket Pets

I bought myself

a little ham

thinking it’d be funny

that ratster slept

all day, and kept

me up at night by running

Next I tried a

a guinea pig

after some research

but high-pitched squeaks

gave me the creeps

and made my eardrums hertz

I moved on to

a kangaroo

I planned to keep out back

by leaps and bounds

too soon I found

the ‘roo preferred my shack

I’ve settled on

Burmese python

and gifted him to X

from whom I’ve heard

No single word

–a marvel to digest.
