Koa, Unplugged

having a little fun . . . to be read out loud

If you happen to encounter Koa,
he may erupt like Krakatoa!
Walkers with dogs are barking triggers.
Some runners also elicit tremendous vigor.

We think he was a pup abused,
that he was mistreated and his soul bruised.
He does not like big sticks as a rule,
and avoids water and our swimming pool

But a kind soul took pity on him
when he visited her back yard on a whim.
His rescue became our fortunate gift.
of a  gentle dog who always uplifts.

He greets us with “ah-roo-roo-roo”
and a wagging tail that wags his body too.
He acts like he’s the happiest boy
If only he knew –  he is our biggest joy.

Thus, there is no need for alarm.
His barking and howling conceal his charm.
He is affectionate and will lick you with glee
and protect you from every single enemy.

Inspired by my new friend, Barbara Ferguson . . . Thank you!
