Is there such a thing as being too proud of your kid?
By: Mikielikie V.
My doctor said that I'm old and fat.
He suggested that I buy a cat.
And so I did and here he is,
I named Captain Fizz.
Cause when he's hungry he starts to spit.
He'll roll around and throw a fit.
It didn't bother me until one day
I came home and he said "hey
You need dog or a fish,
And I need something in my dish."
Now a talking cat is kinda strange,
But now I have a dog with mange.
His name is Champ but he's never won.
He likes his name; he thinks it's fun.
He told me so after dinner.
" I like my name. Now I'm a winner!
But you're still old and fat
and I agree with Fizz the cat.
You need a fish to help you out.
Don't be sad and don't you pout."
and so I bought a fish named Izzy.
I named him that 'cause he looked a little dizzy.
His eyes are crossed and kinda large.
He was hit by a barge.
He said one day out of the blue.
"Thanks a lot from me to you.
I was almost dead when you bought me
But now I'm well and so is the puppy.
The cat's a pain but he's alright.
He talks too much and spits all night.
Get rid of him and we'll all be happy.
You don't need him; he makes you sappy."
So Captian Fizz was out the door.
Never to return... no more.
Champ said, "Man I liked that cat.
It wasn't his fault that you're old and fat.
You should flush away the fish.
And while you're at it, fill my dish."
So here I am fat and old.
My heart is turning slightly cold.
And the cat and fish are all alone.
And it's me and Champ in this home.
But he's getting grey and fat......
Maybe I'll buy him a cat.
