Banana, 'Here Boy'
and post notes and photos about your poem like William Kekaula.
"Banana", that was his name
a mixed breed, all the same
in Hawaii, they are called "Poi"
dogs pronounced as, "Poy"
not as deploy but as in decoy
he is also a male dog, a boy,
as puppies, they are "sire"
breeding, they are for hire
and they are known as a stud,
as a puppy, his name was "Bud"
because he ate bananas we
changed his name, instantly.
He was our pet and not a hunter,
like the other dogs, he is a player,
the other dogs know their stuff,
and you never call their bluff,
Banana can also be not very nice,
he only is that way if you are mice,
Not for breeding, he is just a dog.
"Ili'o" is Hawaiian for a dog,
something good to know.
Now he is up in doggie Heaven,
being with me since I was eleven,
human years, he was 17 years old,
now his heart is eternally gold.
Love you BOY!!! Banana RIP!!!
