Best Friend

You always listen
To my words
And you never
Criticize
You’re astute
And self-assured
Sensible
And wise

When we’re alone
I take solace
And comfort
In your eyes
You’re solid
As a stone
Your presence
Pacifies

We don’t even
Have to talk
I love to
Brush your hair
I love it
When we walk
Together
Anywhere

Thanks for keeping
Me content
And helping
Me survive
Truly heaven-sent
You’re the
Greatest
Dog alive

Alliterative Animal Kingdom

koala


Round the rampant rugged rocks
Rude and ragged rascals run.

—W.H. Auden

Queasy koalas quarrel and quibble
Noisy gnus nag and nibble
Hefty horses heave and hoe
Shameless sheep shop and show

Playful pigs prance and preen
Careful cats cook and clean
Dancing dogs dally and drink
Thirteen thoroughbreds thank and think

Buoyant bunnies broil and bake
Rampant rhinos rush and rake
Slippery seals splash and splish
While wayward weasels wonder and wish

Scoop

Who pooped?
You pooped
Guess I gotta scoop poop

Call dog
Haul dog
Happy you’re a small dog

Who pooped?
You pooped
Guess I gotta scoop poop

Feel fine
Canine
You ain’t gotta scoop mine

A dog is true and loyal to the end
