                    There is a little lizard who hangs out
                     On the backside of a chair in our back yard
                     At two a.m. when Tiggy has to scout
                     A place to pee, and I am there to guard
                     Her from night owls and critters who cause harm.
                     What Lizzy does or where she goes all day
                     I cannot say, but staying safe and warm
                     Are her two goals—being no-one’s prey.
