I Don’t Scream
By Donna JT Smith

Inspiration piece

I’d like a treat

If you don’t mind;

I’d like the kind

That you would eat.


Not just a bone,

Though that is good,

I think I would

Like I-scream cone.


My pick…


So, if you please,

Another ride

Where you have buyed

Cold sweets for these


Sweet tooths of mine.

I’ll lick it up;

Not in a cup

A cone is fine!


To lick…


I know last time

I got brain freeze

And had a sneeze

Which left some slime;


This time I’ll eat

Without a drip

Escaping lip

In the back seat.


No ick…


You’ll have no mess

I’ll eat with flair

No wear and tear,

Nor drippy-ness.


My tongue will wrap

Around my jaws,

And then my paws

I’ll quickly lap.


So slick…


Could I do more

To seal the deal;

Lick steering wheel,

The floor and door?


I’ve heard it said

That you would scream

For this I-scream;

I’ll bark instead!


My trick…
