Never piss off a chicken
She’ll catch you by surprise
Peck your calf with a sharp, sharp beak
And stare with her beady eyes.
Same goes for your little house cat
She’ll fool you with her velvety grin
Lick your face oh so lovingly
But you should know where her tongue has been.
Now, as for the school of goldfish
They say goldy has only 5 secs
To recall the unclean tank
and ever so sparse food flecks.
But you can bet your last, bottom dollar
If they ever grew long sharp teeth
Next time you’re scrubbing their walls
They’d get you from underneath.
And never piss off your dog.
Leave him sleeping where ever he lies
There could be a time when there’s no difference
Twixt your face and chow, in his eyes.
Next time you go out to do shopping
My advice is to take a long list
‘Cause there’s no telling how they’ll treat you
If their dinner has somehow been missed.
Inspired by a very sharp pecking incident this morning because I’d forgotten the chicken feed; an oversight quickly remedied this afternoon.
