Ode to an Iguana
Don’t get too attached to the foster iguana because you know it will not last
That’s what I told myself when I first met Iggy, the green iguana
Oh, but her green-gray scales and her mysterious past!
Her mischievous face, her spines down her back, so reminiscent of prehistoric fauna!
With potential adopters on the horizon, I couldn’t open my heart
Even when I pet and cuddled her I tried to stay firm
But weeks went by, my resolution started to wane
How could I resist her when she is so cuddly and smart?!
We can still learn from her and enjoy every moment in the short-term
I’ll love her and wish her the best forever home, just the same!!!
