Morning Boys

Nestle in deep slumber the mighty Kublai dreams of lapping cold milk, eating fresh meat, running wild with hundreds of his doggie friends Little Genghis shoots up from bed and darts out running to room to room to sniff and search for what abouts finding Kublai asleep on his fluffy pillow bed He sniffs him gingerly and retreats under the adjoining chair Peeking through the curtains a stream of sunlight embraces the mighty Kublai and he stretches in place sits himself up and has a good long yawn He steps off his bed as if he was sleep walking and within an blink of an eye A snarl a flash a quick ten yaps, the little Genghis is on the attack, he jumps he jives on Kublai hide then just as quick he runs away and hides Kublai stumbles back on his rump, shakes his sleepy heavy head looks confused and tries again to stumble up-BUT BOOM! the attack resumes happy growls awake you pal as Genghis barks and snaps won't shut his trap then just as sudden disappears Kublai shakes it off, softly coughs and nudges his way back to bed lies himself down with an irritable frown and lays down his sleepy head Genghis purrs into a growl getting ready to pounce his pal But I open a bag of doggie jerky treats Kublai immediately stands on his four feet Eyes wide open nose in the air, he zooms so fast without a care Genghis planning another attack but with Kublai barging gets slapped back, flipped over and rolls under the chair like a cat Kublai will have no more of that He greedily grabs his doggie treat the taste of morning now so sweet Little Genghis finally got it back no more of his morning guerrilla attacks Genghis gets his jerky treat runs and hides in defeat Mighty Kublai licks his lips savors the flavor of treat he gets What a way to begin my day nothing really left to say no TV shows could bring me the joys of the silly antics of my little morning boys
