“Max” by Jeanie Axton


The frost was glistening on the grass

when Max went out to pee

He trotted to the frozen lawn

and sank down to his knees


Max slipped then slid while yelping

veering left and skidding right

Landing at the picket fence

he gave himself a fright


Alas! Poor Max was stuck like glue

he couldn’t move or pee

Jammed firmly on the frosty post

for all the world to see
