Two little pairs of sweet brown eyes
Want all my hugs today.
I have to share there equally
If they’re to have their way:
I cannot give “more” hugs to one
And leave the other “out”
Without a lot of push and shove
To see what I’m about:
A grievous and lonely tug-of-war
Is what I have begun,
As two frantic dogs keep vying for
A lap built just for one!

Please note the extra syllables,
Corresponding to the accelerating pace,
In the last three lines.
Normally, I plan to post an acrostic sonnet on Monday mornings. However, these take some time to write, and most of my acrostics were written on a much older, crankier computer. I’ll have to look one of these up then type it up on this new computer. So, for convenience’ sake (my own, that is), I am giving you a newer, already-typeset poem for now. After I have tackled larger mountains of dishes and laundry, plus fed, watered, and walked our doggie-loves, I’ll get back to the computer.
Right now, I need to wake up “Cedric” and take him on his first walk of the day. Oh, if y’all haven’t been reading Cedric’s stories on my alternative blog: specialcreationwoman.wordpress.com, let me just say you are in for a treat.
Well (to the tune of “We’re off to see the wizard!”), I’m off to walk some doggies! See you later,
