Seasonal Confusion

Birds, as pets, are easily fooled.

They believe that summer is still here.

Turn up the heat, leave a light on,

They have no idea winter's near.

Briefly Noted

There was a young man from China
Who couldn't think of anything finer
Than to smoke cigarettes and play with his pets 
And eat out at an all night diner

Awesome in sports,
Nice in character,
Important in many ways,
Entertaining the crowd,

Many abandon their pets under the delusion that they.
will comfortably live their lives in their natural wild way,
but unseen they suffer.
Unheard they cry.
In agony they linger.
In lonliness they die.

Old McDonald

Old McDonald

Old McDonald sold all his farms 
for tending pets had lost his charms 
He found a new job 
He thought it was fab 
But a whole day clown with raised arms

Short Pets poem by Jon A Cavanaugh| Details |


Incorrigible overactive pets
Are very troublesome for Vets
For they aim to scratch the face or eyes
Before the Vet can tranquilize
And they sometimes snag a hand or knee
But the biggest gouge comes with the fee

Short Pets poem by Angela LaVarco| Details |


Sister's are like blisters. 
They hurt those misters.
Brothers are like candy
They choke on brandy
Mothers are like books
They mess with the crooks 
Pets are like eaters
They bite the cheaters
Family is scary
Because their always Wary

Short Pets poem by Anna-Marie Docherty| Details |


Fictional for a prompt:- think outside the box in sixteen words.

Frothing at mouth
Distemer shows itself
Taking over body and mind
Mans best friend 
Slowly dies

Please, please, please get your animals/pets vaccinated!

Short Pets poem by HOLLY MOORE| Details |

This Place

Of night.
My house creaks.
Speaks with noises.
Tells of memories.
Holidays often shared.
Many pets have come and gone.
The sweet aroma of this home.
One child to leave this lovely address ~
We have been blessed to live in this place.

Funny Thing About The Yard

It’s always behind or in front

seems it needs a door to get to

never complains when it rains

pleasantly, pets poop & pee

friends & family cross to hug me

my connect out there

in the back and front

it’s what I have now for all the hard

that stretch out there

the yard

Short Pets poem by Jon A Cavanaugh| Details |


Fleas are a nuisance - noisome specks
They hang out in our yards
They lounge on our decks
Pets offer them dinner
And invite them inside
Fleas! - partying parasites
Yet know how to hide
They breed beyond number
These squatters that irk us
Turn our home from a castle 

Into - a circus

Ups and Downs

for fun
cuddly pets
falling in love
small children trying things for the first time

When I see someone treated unfairly
war and hunger
unshed tears
make me

Salt Water Cure..

Have you ever noticed how healthy you feel
after a swim in the ocean?
Would salt dissolved in warm water have the
same effect?
Table salt and warm water prevent infections.
Applied to open wounds and gashes on pets
It may sting eg. "Like adding salt to a wound"
Would a gargle prevent a cold?

Short Pets poem by Tahera Mannan| Details |

The Dinosaurs

The big Allosaurus
Loved to bite its neighbour
Guzzle blood by gallons

The Apatosaurus
Laid eggs in sand nest
An ugly herbivore

A few had wings to fly
Giant beaks and piercing eyes
Stole fledgling from nests

But lived long ago
That we may never learn or know
whether could be good pets

Short Pets poem by Nancy Jones| Details |

In it Together

Most of my friends
get into their pets.
Most of my pets
get into me...

but it's a little different.

I strive to love people
and pets and the earth,
the one's that I gave to and
who gave me birth.

And that takes up most of my time.

Pets  clarify
or confuse
depending on how much rain we've gotten lately.

Short Pets poem by Beckley Ebako| Details |

The goddess

She pets,feeds
clothes and protects
A mother human
For i was weak and vulnerable

She cares,comforts and consoles
with a seraphic massage
in sound and touch
though i'm grown and strong

Oh,the better half
that completes every man
always needed for wholeness
either mother or wife,
the woman;a real goddess

Short Pets poem by Patrick Wakefield| Details |


sun, light, murmurs
through slatted edifices
onto restless 4s

they shuffle tireless
ssssn uf fle
those 4s
ever do
on strawlittered floors

in woodly cages

a 2 enters
pets 4 1
whispers to 4 2
soothes their aches

2 astride 4 1
clumsy gallop

through golden portals
into virgin time

She Likes Sex And Candy

There's this chart as formula in making a movie you see....
Ever being adjusted brought abreast unto her times and here 
We are amid the twenty-first century silver pears cherry squares
Taking notes casting votes statuettes bell tower pets his writers tea ?
Crunching numbers computers quiz shake your glass; green back dreams.

Grimy Rocks

Beautiful days filled with work, love, kids and pets
Stuffed to the brim and living without regrets
   Life's little, stubborn and grimy rocks
   Are neatly placed in a teeny, tiny box
Better to treasure our sweet and golden nuggets!

(Poem dedicated to those insignificant flea-like people who are, quite frankly, like grimy little

Kim Bond

Mother of Rachel, Trey, and a few pets;
Lover of Jesus Christ our Lord, darling husband Hank, and faith-based writing;
Who feels hopeful, joyful, and whimsical; 
Who fears tight spaces, long races, and crowded places;
Who would like to see her Savior’s face, gifts of grace, things fall in place;  
Resident of Saint Louis, Missouri;

Dog Wearing a Lampshade

Because of all the trouble he has made, the dog is forced to wear a lampshade. He has to break out of his habit to bite. When in public, the dog’s actions are not right. The pet may bring his owner a fine. We always have to keep our pets in line. I believe that canine is smart enough to know. If he stops biting, then that restraint will go.

Short Pets poem by shreyas susan| Details |

when i am no more

An empty space in the dining table 
A vacant space in the car for four
My room vacant without an owner
My pets masterless
But still my dreams and a handful of aspirations
remains trapped in the gap
between the living and the eternal
If only i was lent a patient ear
If they hadn't forced me to push further in the world of competition
Maybe i would have been spared

Short Pets poem by GOODNESS LANRE| Details |


Castle in the air
In esteemed royalty
Treasures and treasured
Table embroided delicacy
For all and sundry
And a life of a thousand years
Wilds as pets, lions of course
A queen, a rare beauty..
Magic and power
All at my beck and call.
A different castle out of this 
A community of change.

My thought returned
Here am I on my bed.

Higher Power Guide

My Poetry Book contains poems about love, family, pets, faith, humor, children, grandsons, 
and analogy..My favorite poem in my Poetry Book is in Senryu Form and reads as follows:

                                         My love for mankind
                                     Is burning fire when alone
                                       Then I leave my home

Short Pets poem by Cynthia Alvez| Details |

To Our Departed Pet Friends

Our lives are touched
In gentle ways by those
With voices void of words.
They linger in our hearts and
Thoughts, and we know we
Were loved unconditionally
Until the very end...

Our pets are in the sunset and sunrise
Of our lives.
They are our treasured friends,
Devoted companions and missed
More than poetic verse can say.
They remain in the circle of our love.


Short Pets poem by Shahana Jackson| Details |


Bless my restless soul. 
Im not even 30 yet but im in a suffering from mid life crisis mode. Its not that I am overanaylitical it just that this world is too beautiful to admire all alone. So I pick and I pull and let the manic in me set in. Im too young to simply be okay with inserting a couple of pets in. I want to ride this crazy rollercoaster an never let the jet set in. Bless my restless soul.

Short Pets poem by Andrew Gallagher| Details |

Cost Crucified

Garish showcase 
in your front display;
jitter impatiently
for next payday.

Martyrs pay debts,
not collect them;
you swipe crosses
with your plastic pets.

Pennies for pupils
advertise the cost:
far steeper
than you thought.

Go steal a wish
from some pauper fountain.
Faith immovable?
"Just buy the mountain!"

The deals you’re making are unjust.
All that glitters turns to dust.

                       We had a jolly neighbor fondly called Ms Lindsey    
                       Who often explained what her pets couldn't say

                       Defending her dog who barked on someone new

                       "Oh! its asking-Who...who who....who..are"

Short Pets poem by Carrie Richards| Details |

Shiloh ...

Her leash and frisbee
Sit high on a shelf, waiting
But no one is coming...
The park down on the corner
Looks abandoned and lonely

    Yet,  there is a place
    Where the sweetest golden girl
    (Shiloh was her name)
    Tail wagging,...... happily plays
    Unleashed....while chasing rainbows!

Mummies Candy

Mummified body Scouring on Halloween Lurks into the night The bandages falling off Creepy skin is rotting There are many treats Within the old mummies heart Candy corn inside The living sweets Keep the mummy alive Gives kids their snack The black cats keep watch To guard these candy sweets People avoid the cats For fear that bad luck will hit Mummies love their pets
