NOW, DON’T GO all judge-y on me. The 17.2 inches of snow and the doggie duties (from left, Bailey, Sadie Lou and the sainted Jeremiah) got to me the other day. And this is the result.*
Walkin’ Those Dogs
Pups gotta poop, pups gotta pee
I gotta be where I don’t ALWAYS wanna be
Can’t help walking those dogs of mine.
It may be snowy, rainy or sleet
I cover up, my head to my feet
Don’t ALWAYS love walking those dogs of mine.
Although they may NOT be the dogs
People think of as pretty
To me, they are what they should be.
Oh, go pee . . .
Jeremiah was 14, Bailey was 9,
All of age 10 Sadie Lou became mine.
Don’t DARE STOP walking those dogs of mine.
I take the old ones, kinda like me.
Jeremiah, Bailey and Sadie made three.
I LOVE walking those dogs of mine.
Apologies to Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein, fans of “Showboat” everywhere and, at the bridge (for some reason), George and Ira Gershwin from “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
*MLB Art Director LittleBird Kathy encouraged this silliness. When I told her all the elements were in place, her reaction was, “Great! Just in time for Grammy nominations!”
It’s hard to overestimate the amount of ridiculous pleasure we take in weirdness around here . . .
