MyPoWriYe #115 - Failed Flea Circus


Oops!
by Amy LV


Well, our dog Cali has fleas.  She did, anyway.  After an herbal treatment which did not work but smelled like potpourri, she has now had a vet treatment which we hope is working.  Hence, the idea for this short poem.

Fleas and ticks will suck your blood and may carry terrible diseases too.  So I don't recommend the old fashioned flea circus.  Try a caterpillar circus instead.

Students - Again, I stress the importance here of making something out of your annoyances.  The other day I wrote about getting stuck with the last sliver of soap, and now this.  Material...it's all material.
