“Is It Fair”

In traveling one sees lots of things
That to most I’m sure amaze
Yet you wonder how their pets feel
On those overheated days.
 
Now you’re traveling down the freeway
Or on a scenic tour here and about
Well you may be enjoying all you take in
But your pets would like to get out.
 
Well of course it’s an inconvenience
Yet you knew of this ahead
They didn’t need to make this journey
For you could have left at a shelter instead.
 
Yes I’m sure you’d get an earful
If your pets could only talk
Most would like to decide for themselves
When to get up, lay down, or walk.
 
Now they’re not always ready to eat or drink
Just because that’s what you say
Yet you’re responsible and have to try
For form home your now miles away.
 
Yes do yourself a favor of sorts
No matter what you may hear
Give your pets a vacation too
And leave them at home next year!
