Dog Patch

He can’t remember a lot of what it used to be like;
And he’s having trouble remembering the sound of the voice
       He’s thought about calling but;
       A dime doesn’t make a phone call anymore does it?
Did he ever worry—maybe a couple times when no one was looking;
But mostly he was too busy making sure he was swimming with the tide.
       He also tried to make sure he didn’t miss anything
       But he seems to have misplaced something’s he didn’t want to lose.
He knew about keeping the dog’s off the door but;
That didn’t work out so well because;
      Now he knows why the coyote never caught up;
      He was at one of his old hangouts hoping the fence.
