Rosie the Nibbler
By Megan Ray Durkin
Rosie the Nibbler’s the pet for me.
She gives away snuggles and kisses for free.
Rosie the Nibbler hops this a ‘way and that,
But always returns to my lap for a pat.
You won’t hear her moo; you won’t hear her crow.
A thump of her foot is how she will show.
A bunny just wants to hop this a ‘way and that.
And then she’ll return to your lap for a pat.
Rabbits are pets that do not need much.
A full water bottle and hay in a hutch.
Time in the grass to hop this a ‘way and that.
And plenty of space in your lap for a pat.
If you want a pet that’s soft as a cloud,
Come over tomorrow and see what I found.
Cuz’ all Rosie’s babies hop this a ‘way and that.
I’m certain there’s one that will fit in your lap.
