I note that our local farm store has a sign out front: “Baby Chicks are here for Easter”. I went in to be sure and YES they were all colors~! Just telling the man there what I thought, I still felt that this is just not right and should not be allowed~!
NOT EVERYTHING IS A PET
A gift to a kid, of a living thing,
is not always the wise thing to do.
At least not without rules they bring,
a responsibility between them and you.
At Easter we see, many colored things,
a baby duck, a chick and rabbits too.
So foolish the people that bring,
these creators to sell to you.
A life, it needs kind love and care.
The young person may get tired of it,
so neglect would be cruel or just not fair.
An understanding between you both, admit~!
Most homes do not have a place,
same for a chicken, rabbit, or duck~!
And special attention you must face,
would be first, so don’t depend on luck.
Before you get a child a creature,
whether it be a fish, worm, or a frog,
make them understand, be a wise teacher,
responsibility also the same as for a cat or dog.
