The tail wagged the dog

I’m not sure

how that works,

but it seems to be

illogical to me.


Perhaps, the dog

wags its tail so fiercely

that it might seem

like the tail

is in control;



is not does.


A dog (or a cow)

I drew a picture of a dog…

or a cow;

and, now,

I don’t know whether

it will squeak or miaow.

A Labradobee

If you try

and cross

a Labrador

with a bee

you will just get

a confused Labrador

and a bee

that is so much crosser

than it ought to be.

Do you see?


“You are such a slowch!”

I looked at Vega,

and Vega looked at me;

she didn’t know the word,


“It’s a shortening of ‘slowcoach”,

I informed her,

“And not that far removed from ‘sloth’,

just like you.”


By this time, Vega ‘had’ moved – not very far,

and not very quickly –

from a position of indifference

to one of couldn’tcarelessedness.

I wake up in bed with a dog on my head

I wake up in bed

with a dog on my head

who wished me good morning,

and a desire to be fed,

“Hello!’ says me,

and ‘Hello!’ says Min,

and, ‘Good morning!’

‘Good morning!’

with a lick and a grin.


Tobie was a catcher,

a catcher in the rye;

he’d catch the ball I threw for him

no matter how far or high.

I miss my little catcher,

his cuddles and his ways;

but that pooch did live his best life

in the most mysterious ways.

Rusty the Dog

My dog’s Rusty,

I left him out last night,

there was a brief rain shower,

he used to be

just black and white.

Sad Poem 😥

Sad Poem 😥

I’ve got a little dog,

I took it for a jog,

we ran into a bog

… and s





“Why, Maranar, Why?”

“Why, Maranar, Why?”

Why, Maranar, why?

Won’t you run away with me?

Did you have to be a dog?

I am just a flea –

But, we…

could be…

so, ha… ppy!

Why, Maranar, why?

won’t you run away with me?

Dog Song

Dog Song

Every dog has it’s day

Or so they say;

and if you’re a dog

I suppose that’s okay,

Bit, I’m not sure if they know

‘bout these things, anyway.
