Young Veterinarian

from Look What You Made Me Do (2012) by Mailbox



Thanks to Douglas Adams and Rodney Dangerfield for not stopping me from paraphrasing their works.

Douglas Adams once said "if you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a dead cat."

And one of Rodney's classic lines was, "I just finished my first book. Now I'm going to read another one."

What if two people who each embodied one of these character flaws became romantically involved?


She hopes he won’t be just one more vet school jerk
He takes the cat apart just to see how they work*

He’s a young veterinarian in love with an odd librarian
She won’t know ‘til her hair comes down why he sticks around

She could recall every book that she had lent
He looks in her ears so he can see what she meant

He’s a young veterinarian in love with an odd librarian
She won’t know ‘til she turns about why he checked her out

And every time he sits and stares
And doesn’t make a sound
She looks away to anywhere
Or keeps her head down

He gets on one knee as she stands on the floor
She just finished her book, now she would read just one more**
