Barnyard Mommy

by Tom Veatch

The mink, the goat, the gardening kittens
were happily having a row.

The pig in his traces,
his cart for the races
said Get in! It's time to go now!

No, No, That's tomorrow!
But dear may I borrow
the cart -- with your help -- for the sow?

The veterinarian
will come if we carry him
So let us go fetch him from town!

Oh children, oh kitties,
Please watch Mrs. Titties!
We'll be back before lunchtime, I vow.
