First Person Narrator in 'Animal Antics' Poem by Florence P. Wordsmith

I had a fish who ran away
I had a horse who choked on hay
I had a cat who died nine times
I had a goat who couldn't climb
I had a dog who mauled my boss
I had rat who didn't floss
I had a cow that went insane
I kept a virus in it's brain
I've had bad relationships with pets
That all have ended in regret
Maybe what my boss said was true
I shouldn't work here at the zoo
