Cool Dip In the Pool

The sun didn't hide, so it was hot outside, 

I could have baked a cake.

I decided to bum and  jump in the pool, it wasn't cool, 

my dog Doodle that was deaf was basking on a  raft,

so, I started to ask, as I laughed, 

the next-door neighbor's poodle Saber

in a flash bump into me and jumped in and caused a splash.

By that time, I'd become a wet noodle, 

Doodle and the neighbor's poodle Saber had won once more.

I started to bubble, I knew I was in trouble

so, I doubled back inside the house before I died

and made a path for a cool bath.  

My spouse the louse just stood there laughing

as the buttons started flying 

as I took off my blouse. 

I said, Sonny. What so funny? 

I'll give you some honey 

if you join me in the cool tub 

and give me a rub.

Lighthearted and entertaining, Eve! Still grinning at some of the images you bring to mind....and wonder what it's like to have a louse for a spouse:) Hugs // paul

Your words where enchanting and you pulled off a great bit of poetry while narrating this unique and spirited saga of canine buffoonery on a hot summer's day at the pool. Emile.
