Bad Poetry Day: The Boxer and the Pea

My furiends Oz and Ku are hosting a Bad Poetry Day (well, more like weekend), and I wanted to pawticipate! But my poem has to start with an illustration:

LBR foster Gizmo

Gizmo inspired this poem! I call it The Boxer and the Pea

The floor, it is so cold and hard
It really keeps me on my guard.
How am I supposed to relax
without a soft bed beneath my back?

Well, this is much better,
I must admit.
But is just one bed
enough to do it?

Ahh, that's better, let's add one more!
Two beds is comfier by far.
But you know, now that I'm here
That hard floor beneath I still can feel.

Three beds is much better, that's the trick!
I'm sure this is much more like it.
Three beds is great, that's for sure,
But... my comfort isn't quite pure.

Add one more bed, I'm sure that'll work.
Four beds, and I won't feel
That hard floor at all. For real.

The end
