My Aunt’s Big Pet

Dragon-Pet

My aunt wears a tall, pointy hat
And lives in a house with a black cat.

Her other pet is so tall and thin,
I need a ladder to scratch his chin.

Her pet’s so very big that when I tap his knee,
He has to take a look around to see if it is me.

His food bowl’s the size of a kiddie pool.
I stand in his shade when I want to stay cool.

He’s way too big to fit in the house.
He makes a dog look like a mouse.

Her pet roars like a jumbo jet.
My aunt’s dragon is one special pet!
