Coming Out of the Cage

I have a confession to make
I’m having an affair with my lizard
but she thinks I’m cheating on her
and often puts a tail on me

I’m wrapped up in another quandary
My python has a crush on me
and wants me to be her squeeze
It’s a slippery slope I’m slithering down

To be honest, she DOES take my breath away
but if my lizard lover hears this sordid tail
she Iguana be awful jealous, but frankly speaking
I think she needs to scale down her expectations…

    I think this did not do better only for the fact that it is more about clever word play than animals! I still LOVE this one.

    Tim, wow! I can't believe I forgot to thank you for the nice and silly poem you entered in my contest. A late late late CONGRATULATIONS. Thank you for the smirks and smiles your poem gave me while reading it. Hope you can forgive me, it is not like me to stoop low and diss all who support me or my contest. Even if I get no response, everyone still matters, and I try my best... Love love LINDA...
