The Storyteller’s Abode (Louise)

——–

Mister, you are lucky to walk your dog, 

To have his companionship whether, 

His attentions are unwanted or whether, 

You need him to cuddle with while you blog. 

——

Mister you’re lucky, your wife likes your dog, 

That he loves her and protects her whether, 

She’s mad he’s eating gross things, or there’s fur —

Needing to be vacuumed all around home, sob! 

——

I, a boy, had a dog; she got too sick, 

Vets tried to save her; she died with a lick. 

Pets are as humans, we don’t know how long, 

We’ll be here to love, bring cheer, give kisses.

When this boy, wants to pet your dog, let him. 

Reminds him of his dog, brings joy too share.

  1. When I first finished reading, I thought, what a fetching poem. Then realized what a terrible pun that was. (Note I kept it, though, in my response.) The boy’s voice you create in and as the narrative is both direct and endearing. For me, even simply the first line of each stanza makes its own story and a poem (of three lines). Such fine creating, Amanda.
