The Dysfunctional Earthquake Detector
I told him, many times
To remind me when
The earth begins to jolt-
Yet he smiles
Red tongue with slobber
Never dared to bother
Mr. Waffles, ye fare to live under my roof!
Yet ye do not attempt to warn
With even a woof!
It is upsetting to see
That a creation of God like ye,
Cannot adhere with a mind
Like other pups, and serve mankind
For what have I fed ye for years?
Kibble, biscuits, bits of steak,
Yet ye still do not warn me
When the earth begins to shake-
Do not say it is not your fault!
Mr. Waffles, please do explain
your incomprehensible doggy disability.
Though he may not be
The all-perfect puppy
My love for him will never end
And I say we should take a stand
And care for his friends
For what more can they be,
Than innocent companions
...and maybe they will woof
When the earth begins jolt-
