Puppy love
He runs in waggy-tail pursuit
of any tit-bits you throw,
and that’s why you love him.

He wolfs down anything
you put in front of him,
and that’s why you feed him.

He makes himself at home
on your sofa in front
of  the TV, and time passes.

He follows you loyally
to bed when you go,
and only fidgets a little.

Really, you might as well
get a dog.
