Pet May Be Claimed by Owner

By Elton Camp

I found your pet in my backyard 
Catching it proved to be very hard

How you’ve cared for it is a shame
For it isn’t even a little bit tame

Why, I even have to hold it tight
Because it persists in trying to bite

No name tag or collar does it wear
Such information you ought to share

I haven’t been able to get it to eat
Even when I offered a doggy treat

So come and claim it right away
It would be best if done today 

It’s a rattlesnake five feet long
So to someone it must belong

If there’s a reward, let me know
If not, I’ll still be glad to see it go
