Snagged from Niamh at Various Cushions (or did this start with TFE? It might have. It’s just the sort of thing that would come from there.)
“Animals and Enterprises - what animal you shouldn't bring where and why"
Do not take your Zebra to Go Sport.
Do not go to Go Sport with your zebra
In the afternoon
When the passing customers
(zebras like browsing, that may be why she wanted to come along)
have filled the aisles with athletic shoes
tried on and cast aside.
Do not go with your zebra
The security people might mistake you
for spies from other sporting goods outlets
And toss you out
With unkind words.
Do not go with your zebra to the equestrian department
Where the paraphernalia could provoke anxiety
In a free and wild animal.
Just don’t do it.
Don’t go to Go Sport with your zebra.
You will both be much happier.
Oh, and Happy Birthday to Mom!
