Don't Forget to Share

by Darren Sardelli
The parakeets are laughing.
The fish are doing flips.
The cats and dogs are dancing
with ice cream on their lips.

The birds and mice are singing.
The snakes are having fun.
A turtle is enjoying
a hot dog on a bun.

The crabs are all delighted.
The toads are jumping high.
A monkey just devoured
a piece of pumpkin pie.

The pigs are eating apples.
The frogs are drinking punch.
It’s nice to see them sharing
the pet shop owner’s lunch.
