Lady And The Tramp

Lady And The Tramp


I was hangin’ around the hydrant,

With my nose to the ground,

Sniffin’ out what other dawgs,

Might be hangin’ around.

.

It was there that I met her.

She was prettier than an Irish Setter,

And anything she wanted to do,

I was gonna let her.

.

Now I know I’m just a Tramp,

Perhaps mostly a Golden Deceiver.

She was the pure bred Lady,

Or that’s how most would receive her.

.

She had elegance, grace, and beauty,

To inspire a poet to write a sonnet.

She had a certain je ne se qua,

I just couldn’t quite put my nose on it.

.

I got in a little closer,

To get a whiff of her pedigree,

When all of a sudden,

She spun and snarled at me.

.

She was growling and howling,

All over the place.

Then she back-pawed,

Some gravel and dirt in my face.

.

I could have been man’s best friend,

For all she ever knew.

But alas, this Tramp to this Lady,

Could only be Pepe Le Pew.

.

It was in the dog days of summer,

When the Lady took me down a peg.

For when she urinated upon me,

She clearly lifted her leg.

.

Okay this is just funny as heck. I was all a flutter until the last part and the cocking of the leg bit. I was like - "what the ...?"

Micky this made me smile. And your deadpan poetic delivery and steadfast rhythm bounces it along nicely. Sheer bliss reading you always. And very entertaining. Have a sweet day.

PS, the dog photo meditating at the end is funny. He should have an iPod in a paw listening to music. :)
