the dog trots thru the traffic
hoping to find his bone he lost
the bone was special to him he
loved to chew on it underneath
the stairs while his master watched
tv in the den or read the newspaper
the master’s name was larry he
went away on vacation once and left
the dog with his bone his neighbor alice
came to check up on him
he wagged his tail whenever he saw her.
They did not have a special bond but he
liked it when she pet him.
he never found his bone but he liked it
when she pet him.
