A Girl’s Best Friend


A classic beauty, a sight to behold

if I were more like her

I might have known true love

I’d have been wined and dined showered with gifts

loved, cherished, coddled

only the sweetest truest kisses would have touched  my lips .


But yesterday my dog

put away his own toys

he can open doors and close them

he’s a very good boy.


I’m not a classic beauty

I’ve never been a sight to behold

but my dog thinks I’m pretty damn awesome

and that’s good enough for this girl.
