1358 – My Pet Squid

My Pet Squid
I haven’t settled on a name yet. Inky? Blooper? Nostromo? Fido?

My Pet Squid

I have a pet you’ll never get.
No dogs or cats for me.
I got myself a squid, I did
from deep beneath the sea.

I taught him tricks like fetching sticks,
My calamari pet.
His hugs are great, but smell like bait
and leave me dripping wet.

I’ve no regrets about my pet.
It doesn’t even stink
that I’ve been sprayed, when he’s afraid,
with jets of ebon ink.

My truly great invertebrate,
he snuggles me at night.
With all his plenty tentacles
he squeezes extra tight.

I clearly see your jealousy
that I’m the lucky kid –
whose beast is best, unlike the rest –
who gets to own a squid.
