Have you ever seen or heard your pet peeve?
I'm sure it's disgusting like when you relieve.
Do you remember that hero, Steve Reeves?
Just thinking about him gives me the heaves.
Do remember that folk singer, Burl Ives?
Just thinking about him gives me the hives.
I'll bet you've never pet a peeve.
Try it and be left with the empty sleeve.
Blood pumping from the stumpy leave,
all that's left is a bloody bereave.
So, remember, don't pet your pet if it's peeved.
