Coming Out of the Cage

There's something I need to tell you
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 of this tawdry 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.
