An Ode to a Lizard

Hi,

I just thought of composing an ode to a lizard. Here it is:

An Ode to a Lizard


   -   Vivek Pereira


O, pretty little lizard
Sitting on my wall,
Sometimes in my bedroom,
Sometimes in  my hall.

We don't require any pesticides
With you loitering about,
'Cause you kill all the cockroaches,
And make the ants move out.


People always admire cats and dogs
And neglect you the entire day,
But this doesn't bother you at all
As you crawl in search of prey.
