Advice To A Son

Never trust a white man,
Never kill a Jew,
Never sign a contract,
Never rent a pew.
Don't enlist in armies;
Nor marry many wives;
Never write for magazines;
Never scratch your hives.
Always put paper on the seat,
Don't believe in wars,
Keep yourself both clean and neat,
Never marry whores.
Never pay a blackmailer,
Never go to law,
Never trust a publisher,
Or you'll sleep on straw.
All your friends will leave you
All your friends will die
So lead a clean and wholesome life
And join them in the sky.

It's so fun to climb into a pet's mind and create images. You did it very well, Steve! I enjoyed the poem. Best Wishes, Marilyn
Cute and it echoes thoughts I've had myself watching a lab lie flat on the carpet, twitching, muttering as he moves in concert with some unknown dream. A neatly executed idea in light, fun words.
It's the heavy breathing bit, with mine, and then the shudder followed by the sigh. Whatever is in their heads, this is a great reconstruction. Very good indeed. Love Ernestine XXX
Very cute..........When my dog (a bassett hound) dreams...we know to watch out cause he will usually wake up ''attacking'' whatever it is in his dream! If we feel him start to twitch and we're laying close by, we toss something to wake him up. It does make you wonder what the heck they could be dreaming of. Nice poem. Sincerely, Mary
