"SaY" it with a Poem: The Lizards' Tale

My mom is scared of lizards

And she tells that they are hazards

They climb up on the walls

And are even present in malls


She says that they are crazy

And make you little dizzy

She saw that one hidden

Right in the kitchen


She screamed on top of her voice

And her feet scampered like mice

Then I came into the kitchen

And saw the lizards position


I told her it was poor

And was lying in a corner

'As if it is lying in a corner

Get it out I order'


I wasn't surprised by her her reply

And could hear the lizard cry

Please do not kill

I will remain still!


I was rather surprised

By the lizards cries

But what could I say

So I told the lizard to run away


It slithered away like a snake

And my mom trembled like a milkshake

My brother fled and cried

My father laughed and sighed


The lizard was now in our balcony

And was looking rather silly

It smiled at me and it would say

Why would I rather stay?


The lizard is now gone

And I am on some lawn

But what would happen

If lizards appeared often🦎🦎🦎
