a good girl

A Poem a Day in October 2016: #19

erf erf 
erf erf
 
erf erf
erf erf

it’s always the same
when John goes out
to Rotary

erf erf
 
erf erf
erf erf

when he’s working on the steam engine
with the Old Nut Jobs Club

erf erf
erf erf

Trixie is at home

erf erf
erf erf

all alone

when John goes
out for a small drink
down to the pub
every Friday night

erf erf
erf erf

Trixie spends the night alone
calling out
to him

erf erf
erf erf

calling out
John come home

she’s calling out John
won’t you please come home

erf erf
erf erf

all night long

erf erf
erf erf

till the moment John
walks in the door

erf erf
erf erf

to pat her on the head

erf erf
erf erf

tell her
what a good girl
she’s been

all alone at home

erf erf
erf erf

what a very good girl
she has been

such a good dog
