Don’t You Dare Call My Unicorn a Pet

Don’t you dare call my Unicorn a pet
My Unicorn stands erect
Her muscles flex when she takes a stride
Pride, does not describe her majesty
The fact most think she’s a travesty, is a tragedy
And you say to me, ‘There’s no evidence’
I say ‘You are looking in the wrong places’
There are spaces, on earth that humans never go to
Perhaps you were told not to
Or perhaps you were going to
But couldn’t see what was in front of you
And decided it wasn’t worth another step

But don’t you dare call my Unicorn a Pet
My Unicorn has wings like Pegasus
Can fly long distances
High above tall buildings and
Can summon the wind by calling it
Shit. My Unicorn slays demons
Destroys feeble creatures
And when she goes to war, the devil packs his suit case
And in case, you are wondering
Her horn is made from the gold
You would find at the end of a rainbow
Her voice is like the sound of a halo
And no homo sapiens, can ever brand their mark upon her chest

So don’t you dare call my Unicorn a pet

Beware My Unicorn – Elias, age 9 and 3/4

It’s a good feeling to know that you’ve inspired something, especially something awesome, like this poem by 9 and 3/4 year old Elias, after hearing Don’t You Dare Call My Unicorn a Pet.

Beware my unicorn. Hes tough n rough And he likes to ruffle stuff. Rainbow spit Gripping feet As you probably know… he has a horn made of gold. After eating jam tarts he tends to laugh Cos this is my unicorn for all to dread… so my unicorns NOT a pet.
