Gigi, the Dog on a Diet

There was once a dog named Gigi Who lived by the motto “feed thee!” Not one for moving, her vet (disapproving), said, “That lazy dog needs to see me.” We took Gigi in fairly soon. Her cute little face made folks swoon. But with body so big, (she stuck out like a pig), The vet made her walk to the room. Gigi was placed on a diet. Her owners thought it a riot. Until the vet looked at them Saying, “You could lose ten.” And the room turned suddenly quiet. The moral is perfectly clear. Do not mock the one’s you hold dear. The things that you say might be headed your way, Coming closer, on target, and nearer.

Hi Georgette, I love your poem. I am a college student and I need to use a poem as an example for a part of my capstone project. Can I have permission to use yours? It won't be published, just a student paper.
