The Doggone Dog Contest

"GO FETCH"

Call me whatever to suit your moods
Lay me out with cuss words, “give me the goods”

Scandalize my name every place you go
“It’s a dog eat dog world” but I hate that flow

So scatter your venom to the four winds of earth 
Burn the night oil you may hang in dirt

While hours creep I lie comfortable in my bed
Dead to this world, I fall asleep, well fed

Like a kid after a long, hot day in the pool
In “the dog days of summer”, keeping cool

Each day with a clean heart, I go on my way
Often, “happy as a flea in a dog house”, I stay!

My preference sometimes is to “let sleeping dogs lie”
As this is one baggage, I will not carry ‘til I die

No lasting affect do your words have on me
Wishing you and yours only the best, you see

I know who I am, and keep malice at bay
Fervently I believe that “ every dog has its day”

    Audrey, I found your entry to be the most inspirational or introspective of the group. So though it was not hilarious, I enjoyed the way you employeed all the different expressions about dogs and it turned out a very well written poem. congratulations on the 7th place. LUv, Andrea

    Smile ~ "Enraptured By 'The Beauty, of Her Brilliant Light!!!'" ~ And, my heart finds much joy amid this strong and yet, seeking peace and love ladened verse; for to know that "This Beautiful Soul, of 'A Beautiful Lady,'" can stand amid the sometimes contrary winds of not so pleasant and, withstand their attempts at woe...."Beautiful Audrey; Just Like 'You!!!'" ~ So many images of "Your Beauty Dear" that, cover such a vast spectrum of bright ~ ....Cont:)

    You're such a wise lady, Dimple, knowing that pain only breeds more pain and contempt. Good for you in choosing not to carry such baggage while keeping "malice at bay." One of the best I've read for the contest, dear. Wishing you success! Love, Carolyn
