PET’S CORNER

Pet’s Corner was
another world
all on its own,
with a unique smell,
a most delightful mixture
of bird seed, dog biscuits
and animal shampoos.
The air was full of
explosive sounds,
mewing, purring,
twittering, barking
and the raucous call of
a gregarious mynah bird.
Parrots, Siamese cats,
a cage full of inquisitive
white mice all vied with
each other for pride of place.
There was a fat little Pekinese
that snored very loudly indeed.
It was quite clearly an Animal Kingdom
where each of its kind reigned supreme.
