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.
Copyright on all my poems
Sometimes I'm tempted to get rid of a poem when I think it may not be my best but I'm always stopped in my tracks by children or teachers who don't want me to do this. So this poem was chosen by children in a school in Colorado as their favourite poem to perform - and they obviously enjoyed it very much and did a good performance for my skype visit to their classroom, so there it is, it stays. You can always do a picture or send me a photo if you'd like it to accompany your favourite poem. Josie
