Sophie Helen Saves Us Daily
Sophie Helen is our beyond protective black cocker spaniel.
She races out to meet the rapists and murders
They come in the form of Amazon deliveries.
Postmen and house painters, she previews them all.
Expecting their intentions are notoriously diabolical.
To her they are killers carrying hidden axes and daggers.
Untrustworthy, menacing, lecherous liars and thieves.
She barks elongated warnings.
Frantic, angry, howling, fierce barks.
Until the evil ones sit down and give her a treat or a pat.
Within seconds becoming their new best friend.
It is now she and them against us.
