Crumb

It fell from the masters table. Pets would snaffle it if able. "Why!,' yelled the master, 'are you dumb? You grapple over one mere crumb! You both have big bowls full of food. You're so ungrateful! That's just rude. Nevertheless, you mortal things, So much joy your company brings." The dogs wag their tails happily. They play and jump with child like glee. What would man do without his friend? With whom would precious time he'd spend? Ponder this and your rage will numb When your dog takes away your crumb. These furry friends enrich our life. They comfort us in times of strife.

Congratulations on your win. What a wonderful story/write. They love every crumb from the table. It is much better than their bowls of food. Love these two lines, "These furry friends enrich our life. -and- They comfort us in times of strife." So Very True. Have a blessed day..............

Thank you so much for my placement in your contest! I love dogs too. Every time I see one and if the owner seems friendly I just have to pet the dog. Such lovely creatures :-D thanks again Constance x

This was so cute and so true. We have a little pugalier, and his nickname could be mooch. They certainly do enrich our lives though. Shared this with my husband, he smiled and chuckled. I enjoyed this poem a lot. Glad to have found.

Awe thanks Marikate. I hoped that the humour would be seen. I haven't got a dog at present. But I'll definitely get one in the future. They are so loving and they are happy with food, sleep and lots of love :-D so glad you and your husband enjoyed this one xx
