EVERYTHING is awesome

Thu, 06/11/2015 - 16:51 -- JAZZMOB

To bring some awe to your your life, look at the mundane in a new light

A perfect example I see is the job where they NEED me

It's not an easy thing to deal with the dumb

In customer service, where they all seem to run

No, I don't mind, and for one reason alone

Most bring their friends, the ones with no phones

The friends I speak of cannot smile or laugh

Though they bring me the warmth that will last and last

I can coo and ahh and ooh and dawwe

Nobody minds, at least, nobody yet

These friends, my friends, are your pets

They wriggle and waggle, woof and purr

The thing that brightens my mood is when I first see the furr...

No matter the size, shape, or type

I am filled to the brim with the same heady hype

Studies show that they relax the mood

Loosen the stress

Eat lots of food

But the thing to me that they bring most

Is a combination of different hosts

You see, friends, not all thier owners are dull

They bring in the sweet old couples

The shining new babies

Heck, sometimes they have a hand

Attached to their leash or handle of their (carrier) bag

The hand is unrecognizable as I fawn over the newest furry

Until I look and stand up in a hurry

To friends, to family, to regulars known by name

And that is the reward to which I lay claim.
