Three Legged Dog

Three Legged Dog

Quazimoto searched that day
from early morn till evening
His three legged dog had run away,
which left his poor heart grieving.

Just why his dog had run away,
old Quazimoto couldn't say??
Perhaps somewhere with better pay?
A place dog's lives had meaning

At twilight Quazi lurched toward home
to dine on humble fare
He'd named his three legged dog "Jerome",
in preference to "Pierre"

His dog would only usually roam
a territory close to home,
but now he feared his dog Jerome
was beyond even his prayers

Our Quazi barely slept that night
He awoke to song birds singing
He realized in a flashing fright,
the doorbell had been ringing!

Now Quazimoto wasn't bright
His frame was bent to half it's height
but even he could feel all right
with Hope eternal springing

Quazi bumbled towards the door,
around the altar, through the pews
Past statues standing on the floor
proclaiming the good news

The clock read it was almost four
when Quazimoto reached the door,
and soon he'd have to start his chores
A new day would be beginning.

He flung it hard. It opened wide,
and there before his bulbous eyes
His three legged dog he thought had died
was here again in rank disguise

So now Jerome was home at last
His fur a mess, both eyes were glassed,
but Quazimoto never asked
where he had gone to get so trashed

Hopefully Quazi gave him some hair of the dog that bit him to ease him through the hangover.

Thanks Heinz,...this one was imagined while waiting for my own dogs return from wherever she got off to. The only difference is that she's named Lola,...not Jerome,...and of course, has all four legs...I only resemble Quazimoto in profile. :mrgreen:
