Wary Mary

Wary Mary
Quite contrary
How does your dating go?
With not much luck
Keep gettin’ stood up
It’s just a load of woe.

Singing Dog

He longs for the wide open spaces of the moor and sheep to chase. Alas he lives by the bypass with its fumes and growl of engines on tarmac. But at dawn and dusk the wild dog in him seeps out in a sweet, sharp, poignant howl.

Soft Spot

I often seen him down The Dog & Duck where he’s wont to cheat at darts and neck back unattended pints of beer. I  walk back home with him time to time as we live in the same part of town though I’ve never invited him in for a coffee. I’ve a soft spot for him but I don’t want fleas in my flat.

Nice Shot

Spring's in the air and he feels like a pup again; he's loosened his collar an extra notch, pissed on a few posts more on his morning walk and flicked a flea onto the neighbour's whining cat. Nice shot.
