Spencer The Dog

Poem By Marilyn Lott

“Every boy needs a dog, mom”
My little boy said to me
Since I was raising him all alone
I tried to be the best I could be

So we found this little puppy
As he woke up from his sleep
So small and cute and cuddly
Steven said, “This is the one I’ll keep.”

At first he was such a cutie
He looked much like a baby Lab
But time changed everything
And he became so very bad

He ripped my brand new jeans
That I finally saved money for
So he wouldn’t terrorize the neighborhood
He was tied up close to the back door

A watch dog he turned out to be
And he loved both Steve and me
But he couldn’t be trusted with anyone else
I worried about my liability

So I learned that you just never know
When you look at a sweet little face
You better take some extra time
And the lineage you’d better trace!

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord

He has risen to fame

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue
