At the beach 2.27.10
I woke up this morning and went to open the blinds
Crack open the window to hear ocean sounds that sooth my mind.
With my slippers on, I stepped on a log
During the night duty left behind by my dog.
Walking out to the back door to greet a rainy day
That’s when I noticed a terrible fume wafting my way.
I love my little boy but he threw me for a loop
I didn’t notice at first that I had stepped in his poop.
I tracked it around the soft squishy bedroom floor
Yep, I didn’t notice till I was at the back door.
I yelled and I shouted but this to no avail
All Benny could do was wag his wiggly tail.
Poop’s hard to see on a brown shag rug
And Benny just stared with that innocent little mug.
Washing and cleaning while down on my knees
Thats when I saw the signs that he had also peed.
I grabbed all the things to clean up the mess
And became fuming mad and wasn’t at my best.
I followed the trail and finally came to the spot
Where last night he dropped a bomb that musta been warm but not hot.
The odor was so bad, it really just stunk
I thought it was worse than the smell of a skunk.
I lit scented candles and opened all doors of the house
The stench was so bad now it could kill any mouse.
Benny went running when he heard my foul cussing words
He was completely aware Dad had stepped in his turds.
I got carried away with my anger and wrath
When I realized I had spread it over a very long path.
I finished the cleaning but the rug needs shampooed
A wretched start to the day when in the house my dog pooed.
Being sound asleep, I hadn’t heard his call
To tell me he needed out and it wasn’t his fault.
So we let it go and bye gones be gone
I love my little dog and when he’s bad still does no wrong.
Now snuggled together under a blanket as one
Me and my dog and the clean up is done.
