Pet Dinosaur


“It would eat us out of house and home!”
Is what my mother said.
“Besides, I think I read somewhere,
That all the dinosaurs are dead.”

“It would eat us out of house and home,”
My mother said to me again.
“We wouldn’t know what to feed it,
Or even how we should begin.”

“Our back yard isn’t big enough;
A dinosaur needs room to roam.”
My friend Tommy let me have his.
IT ATE OUR HOUSE AND HOME!
