Daddy, Please?

Daddy, Please?

Daddy,
can I have a pussy cat
to sleep with me at night?
A pussy cat that I will love
and cuddle oh so tight.

No,
you can’t have a pussy cat,
they stay out all night.
Bringing home rats and mice
to give your mom a fright.

Daddy,
can I have a puppy dog
to play with me all day?
A puppy dog that sits and begs
and does just what I say.

No,
you can’t have a puppy dog,
they just bark all day.
Digging holes in the lawn
and causing mom dismay.

Daddy,
can I have a bunny rabbit
to sit upon my lap?
A bunny rabbit just for me,
a friendly little chap.

No,
you can’t have a bunny rabbit,
it'll mess upon your lap.
Hopping all about the house,
I fear your mom will snap.

~~~~~*~~~~~

Mommy,
can I have a new Daddy
to answer all my wishes?
A new Daddy to listen to me,
and help you with the dishes.

No,
you can’t have a new Daddy,
although I share your wishes.
We're stuck with the one we’ve got,
until he's sleeping with the fishes!


~~~~~*~~~~~

Daddy,
can I have some fishes
and keep them in your bed?
Little fishes on your pillow
asleep beside your head.

Yes,
you can have some fishes,
but not in daddy's bed.
But we can keep them in my room,
if you'd prefer them there instead?

~~~~~*~~~~~

Mommy,
can we make some room
and change our daily habit?
For very soon I will have....
a pussy cat, a puppy dog and a bunny rabbit!

There’s no logic like a child’s logic, and long may it be so!
