There may be just a short intermission…
She has gone to the doctor’s you see,
So while she is off gallivanting,
You’ll just have to put up with me.
She had done all the housework this morning,
(I can put it to rights now she’s gone)
Then she gave me a treat and a cuddle
And then left saying, “See you anon…”
I know that she must be out working
To keep me in chicken and cheese,
But it’s boring with no-one to play with,
And I almost wish that I had fleas!
At least I could wriggle and scratch ‘em
But instead I just twiddle my paws,
When there’s pigeons to chase in the garden
And me? I’m just stuck here indoors.
It’s been ages since we went out walking…
Me and her, you know, two-legs and Beast…
Been so long that I’ve almost forgotten…
It must be a whole hour at least!
She hasn’t had much chance for writing,
‘Cause the ‘puter went weird, then played up…
And she called it some names I’m not saying,
Ones that shouldn’t be heard by a pup.
So I’ve hijacked her chair and her keyboard
And thought that I’d write for a while
And watch the dogs howling on youtube,
At least that’ll give me a smile.
She’d quite like me to sing like a huskie,
Or howl like a wolf in the dark,
But I have my own talent with language
And specialise mainly in Bark.
But the house is too quiet without her
And I’m wondering if she’s gone far
I suppose I should just check the window
And keep an ear cocked for the car.
I’d hate her to think that I missed her
Or that I might whimper and weep.
So I’ll just make a nest in the cushions
And settle down quiet to sleep.
