The Creepiest Pet

Of all the pets, they are most boring,
Not a sound, not even snoring;
No meow, no purr, no peeps,
Lizards give themselves the creeps!

I love the illustration! And I like your poem, too, even though I don't find lizards creepy. :-)

Thanks, Ruth. I enjoy your poetry blog from Haiti. Congrats to you and all your good work with the children.

P.S. Don't tell anyone, but I too like lizards ... all creatures great and small. ;-)
