My Pet Geese

"My Pet Geese" —Carmen, 10

 

Couldn't tell if they were girls

So we put in some ideas

Maria and Nancy if they were girls

Lemon and Chili if one was a boy

 

I hear them honking in my dreams (honk, honk)

Oh, how I love my pet geese

 

They started laying eggs

The neighbors came over to steal an egg

But the honking geese

Told us somebody was there

 

I hear them honking in my dreams (honk, honk)

Oh, how I love my pet geese

 

When the hurricane came

They started honking from happiness (honk, honk)

They started paddling

In the flooded water

 

I hear them honking in my dreams (honk, honk)

Oh, how I love my pet geese

 

Lemon or Nancy passed away

The other one was depressed

But I know she'll be happy again

She'll make new friends, with the chickens

 

I hear her honking in my dreams

Oh, how I love my pet geese
