Mother Doesn't Want a Dog
By Judith Viorst

Mother doesn’t want a dog! Mother says they smell
And never sit when you say sit; Or even when you yell;
And when you come home late at night; And when there is ice and snow
You have to go back out because the dog has to go!
Mother doesn’t want a dog, Mother says they shed
And always let the strangers in; And bark at friends instead
And do disgraceful things on rugs; And track mud on the floor;
And flop upon your bed at night; And snore their doggy snore.
Mother doesn’t want a dog; She’s making a mistake
Because more than a dog, I think she will not want this SNAKE!
