For the Kids---A Funny Cat and Dog Tale

As the 

came buzzing by
to rest and munch
and eat his lunch
and have some fun
on the hound dog's 

The old dog
without a clue
in the noontime heat
of the August

by piles of leaves
in dappled shade
of the apple tree,
where an apple fell
and the flies said "yum"
and the bees would hum
and the dog would yawn.

So lazy
he won't
fetch a stick,
or scratch his neck
or care a lick 
about a neighbor's cat,...

That ornery
will prance around,
will tease and taunt
the weary hound,
who naps so sound
dog- day

Hound has no pep
to take a step
to chase
or race
that snooty 
smugly rubs
against his back,
and sticks her nose
up to his snout,
sticks up her tail 
sashays about.

He hardly cares
that she is there.
She preens and cleans 
her own black spots,
She stares at him
he stares right back,
with one eye open,
one eye shut

He'll stretch a bit
and scratch a lot 
but it's too

not a lie.

There lived two pals in London Town
Who just hung out and roamed around
They called each other Tess and Boo
And folk said "what's it coming too
You cats and dogs are supposed to fight
And with each other get uptight"
The pair said "well we do know that
But we're not the normal dog and cat".

They were walking through the streets one day
When they saw this bird all pink and gray
The bird said "hullo both of you"
To the cat named Tess and the dog named Boo
As he looked them slowly up and down
And his face took on a puzzled frown
He said "now dogs and cat's they fight
And carry on and get uptight".

And so they told him how it was
They said "We don't fight because
We listen to our hearts do, we
Which keeps our minds all lose and free"
They Said "Now won't you join us bird
We'll be your friend you have our word"
And so the two became the three
And they were such good company.

The fox

The Fox.

The fox he bounced up to the toad
As everything around him glowed
He took her hand so tenderly
And said "hey sing this song with me"

The elephant told the kangaroo
“No matter what you say or do
You've got to have this dance with me”
And hummed a little melody.

They danced and danced
The whole night through
And really had a great to do
As their time they filled so merrily
All crazy, wild, and fancy free

The chimpanzee said to the clown
As he tapped his toes upon the ground
“Come laugh with me and have some fun
Let's dance and sing, hey everyone”.

The bear he laughed to see them all
As he drank some juice to keep him cool
Then he joined in all the carry on
As they played and danced the whole day long.

Peace, Socrares 1996

Man's Best Friend

Diligent, playful, and wise, 
Of furry paws and soft loving eyes,
God’s amazing gift to mankind.

Smilin' Jack

I know a little dog.
His name is Smilin’ Jack.
He is white all over,
But his right eye… it is black.

For sure, he’s not a big dog;
But much more than a mite.
He’s very sweet; but, for a friend,
He won’t hesitate to stand and fight.

And you should see him in the park
Where all the children play…
So much love for one pup to give
Each and every day.

He has such a personality,
Like no dog I’ve ever known;
But I’ve not seen him for several days,
And I’m afraid he’s gone.

Smilin’ Jack, he has no master;
Tho’ I count him my best friend.
I’m so concerned he may have met
His untimely end.

So, I walk the streets and call,
“Smilin’ Jack, where can you be?
I need to see your happy face
Smilin’ back at me”.

I turn and look at every bark.
I’m alert to every cry.
The thought of losin’ Smilin’ Jack
Brings tears to my eyes.

Oh, my lonely heart is heavy.
It’s rainin’ now, the sky is black.
I’m hopin’ that he’ll be alright
And prayin’ he’ll come back.

As I trudge the squeaky stairs
Up to my lonely flat,
I hear a bit of sympathy 
In the meows of my neighbor’s cat.

My door is shadowed by my gloom, 
But there stands Smilin’ Jack.
He's wet and cold and now I'm cryin’.
My best friend has come back.

Bambi and lily

   Who would have guessed/ the love carried for a beagle no less

   Lily howling at the moon/ with ears long as her toes our coon

   she gave birth to Bambi with no tail/ jack a be , 3 yrs later she is ours still

   no describing the love for our girls / dressed in pink shirts and curly frills

   the girls don't like when we leave home / they show us for leaving them alone

   the pillows torn and howling non stop / we love our girly beagles until we drop

  Reminisce of Southern streets honey suckle vines,  Magnolia air 

     strolling my Pepe down old streets , flowers wild growing everywhere ~


     What was in that carriage as I walked proudly down a sidewalk ?

     My poodle Pepe,  a blue bonnet tied,  Pepe sat up faithfully,  bonnet on his head .

     spectators driving by with smiles , the girl with a baby poodle was the talk ~

     On a old plantation porch calling Pepe  ?  Pepe come home ? I patiently await .

     Where was my furry lamb with silk black curls ? My puppy needed his walk . 

     Told by my parents after several cries many weeks straight ~

             ~  For they knew of my Poodles Fate ~

     "Come inside , Pepe will come back ."  He would not come home , Winter cold.

      Parents hearing tireless cries , the truth was reveled , In a shed Pepe died.

      My Mother told me what no Parent wants to share with a child of five years old ~


     My Poodle had been in a shed with my brother and Dad , curiosity he always had.

     A ladder had fallen on him , taking him away . Calling for Pepe the same day ...

     We buried my Pepe , wrapped in blanket with his bonnet, in the back yard.

   ~ A cross made of branches , brick inscribed " here lies Pepe " bouquet by side. ~

       I can not explain this love that left my heart broken , tireless nights I cried.

THE GOOD WITCHES (for the kids)

Sarah's a good witch
Her basic color is white
Expression    one of delight
You'll never hear Sarah scream
Everything's peaches and cream

She lives in a hut
A poor    humble    little    hut
With dog Spot    a mutt
Sarah likes to brew cider
With little ones beside her

They duck for apples
Splashing    laughing    dog Spot too
Then kids sit for pumpkin pie
Sister  Mary standing by

The kids love Mary
Mary is a good witch too
Sweetness through and through
If you should be passing by
Note the figure in the sky

Crossing o'er the moon
Sarah needs some flying time
Streaking    feeling fine
Mary holds the fort below
Come on in    Enjoy the show!

Dogs are Fun For children

Jump sniff chew scratch
dogs loved to be stroked on their backs
Run pant stretch bark
dogs love playing ball in the park
Digging holes with their clawed nails
Long ears and wagging tails
I love dogs
they are such fun
throw a stick and watch
them run.

[I wrote this one when I was a school boy - it's my stab at the shortest poem in the world ever]

with the kids and the dog
and the budgerigar
with the sun blazing hot
we set off in the car

with a bit of a rush 
we are at the seaside
where the air's fresh and clean
and there's donkeys to ride

on the large sandy beach
we've a perfect picnic
with the sun beating down 
the time passes quick

with the sky turning grey
we expect it to rain
with haste we pack up
then we set off again

with the dusk drawing in 
we are back from afar
with the kids and the dog
and the budgerigar

A beach within my reach

I am a basset hound and I love to play
I can run and jump all day
I really love magic and tricks
I also love chocolate bics
Yummy! They are so good 
I would eat a packet a day if I could
My name is Lady and here is a story all about me
I'm a funny looking dog you see:

Lady was home alone

All she had was her green plastic bone

Her owners had gone out for the day

And Lady really wanted   to play

Miserable, she lay on the ground with her long floppy ears

With watery eyes, it seemed as though she was about to burst into tears
Suddenly she perked up when she heard a squeaking sound coming from the house

Lady became excited, she hoped it was a mouse

She barked out loud and ran towards the sound

Lady was such a clever basset hound
With her long nose, she sniffed out the little mouse in his hiding place

The whole morning turned into a playful ‘dog and mouse’ chase!

The mouse was too fast for her and escaped through a small crack in the wall
He was terrified of this funny looking dog who stood two feet tall

Exhausted, Lady flopped down in her basket to rest

She had tried her very, very best
She closed her eyes and had a long nap

And dreamt that she managed to squeeze through the scary dog flap

When Lady woke up, her throat felt dry

She needed a gallon of water to drink and she alone knew why!
The sun was shining and it was hot

She found her bowl and gulped down the lot

Lady looked at the new dog flap

She lifted up one of her paws and gave it a sharp tap

She took a chance and pushed herself through the gap

Relief flooded through her, she had made it out of the flap

Out in the sun

It was time for more fun

Lady headed to the beach

It wasn’t far, within her reach

Calm blue sea with the tiniest of waves

Grottos and amazing caves

Lady’s paw marks were all over the sand

She loved to play by the sea and on land

Cool air blew around her as she splashed around in the sea

What a great feeling it was to be free!

The aroma of food was all around

She was always hungry, this hilarious hound

An ice-cream van was parked nearby

Lady drooled and just stood by

A young couple spotted the little dog sitting down on her own

Her sad brown eyes caught their attention, they each bought her a cone

Lady wished that she could shout

She clenched both cones in her mouth
She licked off the chocolate ice-cream and wolfed down the rest

they take that walk
together they talk
its not sad or bad
to see the stroll
sometime after dark
watch dog roll log

Kids Love Funny Dogs

She wouldn't win a beauty prize,
My funny little Muffin.
She wasn't very much for size,
But she could keep me huffin'.

We'd play a game of hide and seek.
I'd seek and she would run.
I'd be so tired I couldn't speak.
She'd still be having fun.

She watched him hide his pretty eggs
When the Easter Bunny came.
As the children ran to hunt in pairs,
She joined their happy game.

Their short legs were longer than
The short  ones  that she wore.
For each egg going in a sack,
She'd find a dozen more.

We tried to take them from her and
She'd look at us and grin.
Her mouth was faster than our hands
As another egg went in.

I've had dogs that were more faithful
And superior in size,
But at being glad and gleeful
Funny Muffin wins the prize.

Grandkids love to hear the story
Of how Muffin stole the eggs.
And of how funny she looked running on
Her little Dachshund legs.

Funny Kids Love Lucy

Funny Kids Love Lucy

A few inches pup lay comfortably in
In my tiny daughter's palm
Wooly and cuddled a sweet polka dot
A  gift from my sister with so much of awe
A string round her neck embossed JINU'S LUCY

Jinu and Lucy the inseparable two
Grew leisurely in queens sized bed
Milk for both but Jinu overslept
Discomforted Lucy nibbled her ears
Scot Jinu off to her school with bag

Rambling through the store Lucy the mistress
Licking off soles on smelling footwear
Pulling down tablecloths to dust off left overs
Surveying with each measure
Some cooked right and others a hard bite

A house full in the evening with Jinu And Lucy
Playing with ball or hiding behind screens
Panting with Jinu's antics to make her jump
Nutty honeyed biscuits after running full score
Mother's knitting basket was Lucy's  respite

War cry in the garden bringing Jinu a running
Squirrels scrambling birds fluttering
Whiskers up with Lucy's lungs blaring
Licking paws at victories won
Jinu and Lucy a lifetime companionship

See Spot Run

Oh, a mangy little doggie went galumphing down the street
And as his luck would have it he just happened there to meet
A warden with a wagon and a heavy-duty net
And he nabbed the rabid mongrel and he took him to the vet.
