Little lad and big dog

 When I walk my dog in the morning
we always encountered the little boy
his mothers sends a soundless warning
obviously the loudest and clearest ploy

my dog  and I know the drill by rote
I ám stepping aside  the footway ahead
my dog changes into a flat coat 
of course we both know what the mother will say

you see the dog he just fell asleep 
as always the little boy is  relieved 
you  pass by and count another sheep
with every step heroic thoughts are conceived

for the first time a heroic great kid
strokes his sleeping sheep and proud of what he did
