Indoors and outdoors
Inside and outside i have my pets,
they never give me any regrets.
to chat to them I feel the need,
the goldfish make a fuss when they feed.
the squirrels run and scamper for their treat
greedily treading on each other’s feet
two pigeons scoffing, plump, fat
with one eye open for the local black cat
red kite cruising high on burnished wing
surveys the world, doesn’t miss a thing
