An Early Morning Debacle
by Laurie Kolp
My youngest woke me early,
he was eager to start his day;
and when we got out to the den
I heard a squish and then “No way!”
Apparently our family dogs
got horribly sick last night,
they pooped and barfed everywhere-
it was not a pretty sight.
I decided to wake my husband
the mess was way too much for me,
and that only made him grouchy
until the battlefield did he see.
So we spent the day shampooing,
cleaning up the carpet’s mess;
while the dog’s played and slept
after their nighttime recess.
