Animal Talk

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Talking to animals

Can be a bit of a trick

With rabbits tending to run away

You have to talk real quick


Deer aren’t quite so bad

They will often stand and peek

But they’ll get bored and walk away

If your taking too long to speak


Talking to bears or wolves

Is a much different deal

Getting too chummy with either

Could add to their next meal


I talked to a mouse one time

He was a real crabby chap

Which kinda put me off until I saw

His tail was caught in a trap


Quite often I just talk to myself

Except when I get ‘the look’

Then the Little squirrel and I

Just sit down and read a book

Oh! This is such a sweet poem. The way you wrote about different animals in such a witty and brilliant way. I'm a pet friendly person. Though never dared to approach a wolf or bear for small talk. Lol..

I don't try to talk to my cats. They bore easily and walk away from anyone beneath their intellectual level.

Probably means that I shouldn't try either
But they are cute
Having lived alone all my life, I don't talk much. I forget to talk to creatures or people. I just do my business outside & they do theirs. My dog Lola, on the other hand, has to have the last word with every creature out there. Your poem is nicely rhymed & packaged for enjoyment, with an interesting variety of possibilities from bunnies to bears! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Whatever Lola wants............
Lola gets.......
no doubt very spoiled
This is adorable! I love it
Ir is very cute and I can almost hear the voice of a child in it which adds to the charm.

Talking to yourself is probably less troublesome. This is a cute write Dave. I talk to creatures too, but only the onescwhobeon:t want me for supper. Have a great day.
