In the heaven built for canines
There’s a BOY FOR EVERY DOG:
Bouncing boys for playing fetch
And youthful boys who like to jog.
And the dogs won’t have to share them –
THIS IS HEAVEN, AFTER ALL! –
And when dogs call, boys come running,
RUNNING EV’RY TIME THEY CALL.
Well, I can’t say this is real,
But I know it’s MY DOG’S DREAM:
Just to have and love his human
In a life that’s evergreen.

For Roosevelt and for Lola, who both like to think that my son gives much more time to ONE than to the OTHER.
