‘Twas the 6th of January, one more reason to feast,
‘Twas not only Little Christmas, but the birthday of our beast.
Five years ago, she’d been placed here on earth
Apparently, with intentions
of spreading merriment and mirth.
For why else would a dog be so quirky and hell-bent
As to mimic a cleaning product
Reinforcing the term, “Dog is Mr. Man’s best friend,”
Lu serves as an armrest
especially when she’s stalking a strawberry thief
wait a minute…
And sometimes when we’re not looking
she turns into a teacher, too
And so my Dear Reader, thank you once again
for putting up with my ‘Twas
up to the bitter end.
Happy Birthday Lucy
