I Wanted A Pet

 

I wanted a pet

Mum and Dad said, 'Not yet.'

So I nagged and I asked,

Offered to pay with my money.

I wanted a golden hamster

And planned to call her Honey.

 

They still said no

So all I could do was dream

We'd have adventures together,

Little Honey and me!

 

She'd sleep in my room

And we'd have midnight feasts,

She'd whizz around on mini skateboards

And battle mini beasts.

 

We'd dress up together

In costumes for Halloween,

 

I'd wear purple

And she'd wear green.

 

We'd slide down the stairs

In the middle of the night,

Dressed up like witches

Giving everyone a fright.

 

A play in the garden

In the light of the moon,

We'd dance like crazy

And sing out of tune.

 

When we were done

It's time for a bath

Honey could swim lengths

While I stand and laugh

 

Oh what fun it would be

If I had a hamster

That I could call Honey

I'd have a big smile

And my face would beam

But at the moment

It's only a dream.

 

In the morning

The sun began to rise

I woke up to a big surprise

My parents said 'yes',

Finally they agreed

I could get my Honey

Without having to plead.

 

Off to the pet shop

With a smile on my face,

I dashed through the aisles

Started to race.

I spotted my Honey at the back of the store

Then I shouted, 'This one, this one!'

I'll love her for evermore!
