It starts like an infection
you may start with just One Dog
but soon enough you get Two Cats
throw in Two Horses here and One more Dog
Two of each animal.
Oh but it does not stop there
by the end of the year the numbers have multiplied
Two dogs in the summer
and One Cat that stumbled to your doorstep
and then One Horse as a birthday present.
It is definitely crowded at home by now
but it has never quite felt full
theres always room for at least one more
why this is no one knows
all we know is the infection never leaves.
why label it an infection though
after all the effects are never corrosive
there are only moments of joy and companionship
it does limit restraint
but theres nothing wrong with spreading the love even more.
