Doggy Distraction

It's those big puppy eyes!

Dogs are my joy

I've loved them all my life,

So why am I about to say they always give me strife?

The times I've started something

Raced to get it done

And then, as I'm finishing

Comes my four-legged son.

To while away the minutes, leaving

Inferred jobs undone.

Oh, how I love him, my special Mickey-boy,

Now I'll distract him right back and throw his favourite toy!
