AN ODE TO THE LLAMA IN MY LIFE

Gertrude has been complaining that he has been ignored recently, so to shut him up I have composed an ode with him in mind.

*ahem*

You want your life filled with drama?
Get yourself a hairy llama,
But if this goes against your karma,
Opt for stripy, comfy, jamas.

Since ol’ Gertrude came to me,
A strange but timely legacy,
I’ve dealt with unexpected pee,
And even taught him how to ski.

We’ve often played in the park,
And ventured out when it’s quite dark,
Borrowed from the odd loan shark;
It all has been a triffic lark.

But now he’s getting more mature
It’s trickier to find a lure
To tempt him from our home secure:
He’s getting a tad too demure.

So on my own I tend to roam,
Leaving him at home sweet home,
Self grooming with a brush and comb,
In fact, if he continues to be sooooo boring, I’ve sent off for details of a llama retirement home.
