JOSIE'S POEMS

The chubby puppy sleeps all day

    And doesn’t come when called.

The chubby puppy sleeps all night

    And in his bed lays sprawled.

 

The chubby puppy comes to life

    When food’s put on his plate,

But running in the park?  Oh no!

    For running’s what he’d hate.

 

Then when the children fetch his lead,

    You’ll hear his fearsome snores,

For he’s content that they go out

    Whilst he just stays indoors.

 

The chubby puppy yawns and yawns

    And then, of course, curls up –

And of all the pups I’ve ever met

    He’s the plumpest, laziest pup.
