No take, only throw

Who’s a good puppy, who’s a good boy?

-----This is my ball it is clean, it is blue.

How are you liking your brand new ball toy?

-----This is my ball and I got it brand new.

Give me the ball and we’ll play some catch.

-----I want you to throw it and throw it real far.

When we’re all done you’ll get a good scratch.

-----I’m fast as the wind on my fur in the car.

Give me the ball, your teeth are too tight.

-----I’ll jump and I’ll catch and I’ll bring the ball back.

Give me the ball, release your strong bite.

-----This is my reason, this is my fact.

I’ll pull and I’ll yank so we can soon play.

-----Don’t take the ball, please only throw.

If you want me to throw, we can’t be here all day.

-----Don’t take the ball, it’s mine you know.

I got the ball and the throw is now done.

-----I bark and I jump, we’re having such fun.

I love you my friend, my dog, my pet.

-----I can see that the sun is starting to set.

It’s getting late and we should head back.

-----I love you my friend, my head of the pack.

    The shameless Amos writes again! A riveting thought provoking poem to conjure up old memories of my long gone greatest pal. All that remains is his ball that now sits still on shelf by my bed.
