Poem of the Day


A ball, a dog and us


You look as if you’re giggling

and your tail is madly wriggling

Yes, I know that all you want to do is run.


But, Poppet, we’re not racing

and we’re tired of all the chasing.

I’m warning you, this isn’t any fun!


I thought that you adored me

and is this how you reward me?

If I were you, I’d hang my head in shame.


You’re going to cop it, Poppet

if you don’t let go and drop it.

Just stop it!

You are ruining our game!
