Ode To Spooge

Ode to Spooge…

Dog

There was this dapper,
little, not small,
white, with a sprinkle of tan,
wiry,
character of a dog
who sparked our neighborhood…
Who barked with,
oh what joy
to see you,
greet you,
eagerly
with all the enthusiasm
of his stub of a tail…
He walked his humans
with pride
and dignity
that he was the dog,
the dog of the Benton hood,
a King,
a Gangster,
a Clown,
a Gentleman,
a Jack Russell of all Trades,
aged to perfection…

On learning of dear Spooge's passing...
