The Beauty Parlour
After a few months of neglect,
I’m ashamed to say I do concur,
My little knotty ball of fur
Dirty and bedraggled,
Had to visit the beauty parlour.
What a metamorphosis awaited me –
I barely recognised my boy –
Tail feathers wagging in joy,
Bright black eyes exposed,
Red tongue tip, and little button nose.
