Sandy and Mikey

Sometimes the words just won’t rhyme
no matter how many times
I switch them around from this to that
in the hope that for a fact
I can get them right to say
or maybe try another way
in the end I think what I’ll do
because it’s obvious I haven’t a clue
on how to write a verse today
my aging brain will not say
the things that I want to write down
I’m not a poet only a clown
trying to be something I am not
an artist a poet and a really big shot
so I will give up on this writing today
and take the dogs walking out for a play
for at least I know that we will have fun
me and two little dogs out in the sun.
