My Pet For Sale

It lives with me indoors
food and drink keep it active
loves empty plates and spoils
I see it squatting on dirty plates
licking its limbs systematically

Hot aromatic food it loves dearly
a good soup is main attraction
maid works tirelessly in kitchen
the pet with its innocent look
comes to taste the soup first
but falls there calling for rescue
annoying this pet is!

The food I love most
and timing when I am  hungry
it comes with all filth

I’m tired of the pet, this housefly!
Come, buy it away for a pence
Hurry before I throw into dustbin
