My Pets – #NaPoWriMo20 – Day 29

#NaPoWriMo 2020, Other Poetry Add comments

Hi 😊


Today, I challenge you to write a paean to the stalwart hero of your household: your pet. Sing high your praises and tell the tale of Kitty McFluffleface’s ascension of Mt. Couch. Let us hear how your intrepid doggo bravely answers the call to adventure whenever the leash jingles.

If you don’t have a pet, perhaps you know one or remember one who deserves to be immortalized in verse.

So read the prompt for Day 29.

I wasn’t that enthused by it, but I produced something, at least…?


I only have pet people,

That I have to walk a lot,

And carry all the gubbins for

(Clean up their poop, and snot)

They’re smelly, and they’re expensive

And demanding (but cute)

They grew from small – one’s ‘middling’

The other’s getting huge!

I spend my days in service

But they make it worth my while,

With adventures and stories

That are sure to raise a smile.

They say I’m their pet: ‘Mummy’

And they like to pat my head;

Sometimes they even let me

Curl up properly on beds…


Cheat? Moi?!


Big hugs, stay safe…and I can’t believe I’ve now only got Day 30 to go!  When did April evaporate?!
