.the challenge.

so you wish a puppy

some one to love

despite your difficulties

you loved mine

then

she nipped you

not understanding your

challenges

then she let you put her in the wagon rumbling

over the bridge lisping gently as you sthopped

trusting

rattling

we do not gush

do not love you to the moon and back

the phrase

has become a thoughtless habit

without lisping

do you still want a puppy?

do you still love me?

we best let your parents decide
