I don’t want to cause a spat,
But we’d prefer a cat…
Indoor is fine
With litter box time,
We’re quite content with that!
A dog we’d have to walk,
In all kinds of weather and glop…
Be trained to pee
On a mat–the messes won’t stop?
My wife barely walks on her own,
She’d have a hard time while alone…
While I’m employed
We’d rather avoid,
A dog who’d be stuck at home!
We’d love him–what if he barks,
In our neighborhood, there’d be sparks!
We’d be toting
Him off to lose steam in parks.
