Oh Pet! - Poem by Esther Mukabi

Don’t chew the wallpaper
Don’t munch my clothes
Get off her lap
And stop biting his nose.
Don’t shit on their carpet
Don’t follow me round
If only I’d known
I’d have had you drowned.
Now you know I don’t mean that
So don’t give me that look
You know that we love you
Though you treat us like muck.
You won’t move for the Hoover
You sleep on my bed
You nibble his toes
You climb over her head.
You run us around
Treat us just like a hound.
Remind me - who’s the dumb animal?
