Frivolous and Fun!

If you’re feeling the after effects of Christmas and feeling a little low, here’s a silly poem to cheer you:

Who am I?

I’m not a creature who is loved the best,

It’s not my fault, I don’t mean to be,

Nature made me as I am, you see,

I love cats and dogs the most,

You humans aren’t the best hosts,

I like to flip and flap and jump around,

I can’t stand being still on the ground,

I suppose I can’t change your mind,

Though please be gentle to me and kind,

I am who I am, that’s me,

A most fanciful and friendly flea.
