Poem: Out of Joint

Emma Louise, her snouts out joint
She stays in her house and refuses to drink
It's all because Mom has a new skunk
And Emma is jealous and showing her spunk

Golly gee Mom, Emma does say
Why both with skunks to kiss and to play
After all you have me and there is no doubt
They just can't compete with my big precious snout!

So I'm telling you skunks keep out of my way
That there is my Mommy you've stolen away
I was here first, so you best know your place
Emma's the boss so give me some space!

Well I guess I'll accept you, what choice do I have?
You'll find out quickly that my Mom and my Dad
Are the best loving parents a critter could have
Even though you aren't pigs, I guess you're not all that bad!
