What's This (a puppy's first Christmas)

by CJ Maleney   Dec 25, 2018


What's this? what's this?
There's shiny things all around.
What's this? what's this?
There is something round upon the ground.

What's this? what's this?
There is something spikey in my paw.
It hurts it hurts!
That was not a bloody ball.

What's this? what's this?
Dad has something in his hand!
What's this? what's this?
Ahh that's better "dad you're my man"

What's this? what's this,
I don't know but it tastes nice,
If this is how chocolate is?
I want it more than twice.

What's this? what's this?
There are family everywhere!
What's this? what's this?
The food they will not share.

What's this? what's this?
Dad has just called out my name.
My bowl seems so full of meat and stuff!
Am i going insane?

What's this? what's this
He now wants me to walk?
No I'll just have a little sleep
While you all chatter and you talk!

What's this whaaattsss tthh

Burp!

Sssssnnnnnzzzzzz

    sorry for the belated comment. I like the naive, excited innocence portrayed on behalf of your puppy. I could imagine you studying the puppy 1st xmas experience and feeling inspired to capture it. I loved it!

    Take care.

    Thanks for the comments guys

    Sorry for the delay in response and my general lack of input.

    I’ve busted my phone and have an iPhone on loan while mine is getting repaired. I’m having a melt down trying to figure the bloody thing out

    Regards

    If you have seen a nightmare before Christmas you'll kinda get what I was aiming for with this
