Defumegate - Poem by David Darbyshire

When you live with Animals
Dogs, Cats and Birds etc-tra
There comes a little bonus as Well
Like, nits, blood suckers and Fleas
So man has to Defumegate
Got all the critters out the House
Shut and locked all the Windows
Then I hit the switch, to Fumegate
I was outside waiting the 60min's
When I realized I left the Budgie inside!
The Dog, Cat and I looked at each other
We thought for sure he would be Dead
But was singing his head off Instead
That was strange he didn't sing Before
