There's a Panther in my Poodle

by Juhi Kalra

There are glasses in the sink
from the water that I drink.
And the books in my li-brary
are not dumb and ordinary.
There's a doggie at my door;
did I go to the pet store?
There's a puppy on my couch-y
who was happy, now she's grouchy.
Was a writer, now an author
or an otter; no, an auteur.
