My Puppy Punched Me in the Eye
A Funny Pet Poem for KidsRate this poem
From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups
My puppy punched me in the eye.
My rabbit whacked my ear.
My ferret gave a frightful cry
and roundhouse kicked my rear.
My lizard flipped me upside down.
My kitten kicked my head.
My hamster slammed me to the ground
and left me nearly dead.
So my advice? Avoid regrets;
no matter what you do,
don’t ever let your family pets
take lessons in kung fu.
