Important Safety Tip

Dogs and cats should not be thrown
Above one’s head when one’s alone.
Don’t heave your beagle in the air
All by yourself; if no one’s there
Just leave that tabby on the rug.
Pet levitation’s like a drug
On which the warning labels read
Do not take unaccompanied.
With supervision, go to town:
Fling puppies up, let cats rain down.
A partner makes it all okay.
All by your lonesome, though, no way.
When solo, throw eye-high, no higher.
Oh, and maybe douse the fire.
So, two safety tips: Don’t burn;
Don’t throw too high. Too late? You’ll learn.
