The Dog's Tales: a series of posts in which Tilly has her say....
We're supposed to be out of the office during this holiday weekend, but I've snuck back in while my People aren't looking so I can write up my Saturday post. My paws are a little clumsy, but if I sit up like a Person, I can just about manage the computer by myself. My post today is my first piece of canine poetry:
Ode to the Neighbor's Cats
Thou still unravish'd demons of fur,
Thou taunting creatures of tooth and tail,
As brazen beasts as e'er there were
Whilst over garden wall do sail:
What evil does thou plot today
To taunt a brave and noble dog
Who's honor bound to chase away
All cats who set foot in this yard?
What beasts are these, half Siamese?
What mad pursuit? What fleet escape?
What howls and barks? What wild ecstasies...
But wait, but wait...what's this?
Oh no! I hear my People coming!
Quick! Turn the computer off!
"Me? What am I doing? Uh...nothing."
"Just sitting here chewing my bone...."
P.S. There are more of my poems hidden in the picture captions. Just run your cursor over them. Love, Tilly
