Have you Seen my Pets?

Author: Nesta F Sutherland

This poem was written by my friend Nesta, sometime in 2009. It's here with her permission, but note that it is still covered by her copyright.

Have You Seen my Pets?
 I had three peccadillos-
  Truly interesting creatures;
 Although my friends and family
  Failed to see their finer features,

 So I kept them in a secret place
  Away from prying eyes,
 But they still made their presence felt
  Through loud and plaintive cries.

 Mostly they slept, and caused me little trouble-
  During the day,
 But oh, at night when I needed to sleep
  They wanted to romp and play.

 They led me quite a merry chase
  When I tried to tie them down,
 Until I became a frazzled mess
  Beneath a hopeless frown.

 At last my family insisted
  I needed a vacation,
 And packed me off to a seminar
  For character modification.

 I really enjoyed the seminar
  And came back free from care,
 To find that my precious peccadillos
  Had gone - I know not where!

 It does feel strange without them,
  I hope they do miss me
 And that whoever adopts them
  Will treat them with TLC.
