Trading Up

I traded in our guard-dog
For a guard-Tyrannosaurus.
He's trained to eat the bad guys up
And otherwise ignore us.

I traded in my skateboard
For a fire-snorting dragon.
I parked him in the carport
Next to Mom's old station wagon.

I traded action figures
For an elf and wizard army.
They swear they'll battle bullies
So they'll never try to harm me.

I traded in my homework
For a butler and a jet.
And even still, you haven't heard
My greatest trade-in yet!

I traded in my brother
For a waffle and some candy!
They even threw a yo-yo in!
Oh, trading up is dandy!

  1. Since I'd just as soon keep my brother, I think I could use that guard-Tyrannosaurus.
