Micro-Poem (No.2) My Dog Jack

My Dog Jack

by John Hansen © 2013

I have a dog

His name is Jack.

I throw the ball

He brings it back.

Cats love chasing

Mice and rats,

Jack prefers

To chase dem cats.

To get his food

He'll beg and sit.

When I take him walking

He'll stop and...wag his tail.

Don't be sorry Frank. I 'm glad the concept is popular. As they are short and quick to read I thought they maybe as long as I could make them funny.

Love the non-rhyme on the end. I agree the dog is very good looking and should be featured at a Royal Show.

Oh, to have a dog once again.

Love is where I would begin.

I could watch it pounce adoringly --

From the time it weighed an ounce.

Hey, thanks for reading colorfulone, you are first to visit this hub for over a year. I don't know how I could live without my dogs. They are family.
