What is the central idea of the poem The Vet?

1 Answer

  1. The vet must know why the cat is not drinking milk, why the dog is not eating the bone, why the horse’s coat is not shining like silk, why the parrot only cries, why the ducks and chickens are not laying eggs, why are the canary birds faintly crying.

    If the vet is ever called to a zoo to examine the animals, he must say many things. He must say that the lions have caught a cold, the zebras are getting old, the centipede is having trouble in his feet, the hippopotamuses are getting ill, the bison are getting chill, the Arctic fox is suffering from the heat, the chimpanzees are suffering from some unknown disease, the tortoises have not moved in years. It is the job of the vet to make everything right.
