So what!

By Vladimir Huber

It’s a pet; yeah.
It’s my friend,
we feel for each other.
I am not trying to put you down,
but he really makes me happy.
I know he can’t smoke or be cool,
but I’ve been cool for too long
and my lungs are tired, too.
He doesn’t try to be more than me
and it makes me real humble,
and we know it’s a pet.
