A Dog’s Life

It is raining outside
but I’m nice and snug

wrapped up in a ball
on my new rug.

The fire is lighting
and the lights are low

think I might stretch
there’s no place to go.


What’s that sound?

Slowly I feel
my heart start to pound.

Close my eyes
and pretend to sleep.

Door opens
and I sneak a peep.


I don’t want to go.

I don’t want to go.

I did all my business
a few hours ago.

He lifts my head
to put on my lead

I try to tell him
there really is no need.

Out we go
into the wet,

much more of this
and I’ll be seeing the vet.

A dog’s life
is not always fun

especially on days
without the sun.
