Run, Puppy, Run (NaPoWriMo Day 7)

Run, Puppy, Run

She beckons with a
sharpened nail
and smile sweet-sly

There’s fire in her
stomping heels;
sparks fly all night

Run, puppy, run
with your tail between
your legs

Mama’s calling you
Ma-ma-mama’s
calling you

She’s got a jeweled
collar with
your name engraved

And Louis-Vuitton
doggie bag
her daddy gave

Run, puppy, run
with your tail between
your legs

Mama’s calling you
Ma-ma-mama’s
calling you

Don’t bother biting –
her skin’s a
shell of
granite stone

No luck with hiding –
she’ll coax you
with your
favorite bone

Run, puppy, run
with your tail between
your legs

Mama’s calling you
Ma-ma-mama’s
calling you

[I was inspired to write this when I saw a guy following his girlfriend around like a sad puppy. Do you know any “puppies” in your life? How about “owners”? Also, this came out more as lyrics than anything else as I wrote so I  just went with it.]
