Just A Couple Of Old Dogs

With a deep Growl!

a Corgi’s disapproving eye,

a question mark tail arched in suspicion,

and four white capped feet poised

to leap off the porch into a dead run,

my old dog thinks he has still got it.


Bark! Bark! Bark!

You have been warned by “Outlaw”

not to come too close to the fence.

Despite his advanced years

the little guardian staring at you

will bare his old teeth at you.


Cool it “Outlaw”! Come here!

Come over by me little buddy

and sit your loyal soul down.

We may think we still got it

and we might just have it once,

but today let’s just sit here a spell

and try to accept the fact that we are

just a couple of old dogs sitting on a porch.
