My Partner in Crime!

pinterest.com

Wallowing in a muddy puddle

naked feet jump in gay abandon

squishy, squashy soggy mess,

happy souls prance together

the tiny tail wags in delight

to the sweet sounds of giggles.

My pup, my perfect partner in crime.

Stealthily we enter home,

staining the carpeted floor with tiny footprints of brown.

The silence of the evening shattered

by momโ€™s scream of disgust,

watching us plastered in an earthy pack,

she fires her volley of angry outbursts.

We stand in mute innocence

my pup, my perfect partner in crime!

      Thanks Narayan. Well, would have to go back in time to see me like this. But in the hindsight I wish I had done more of such mischief and pranks as a kid. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Can try and imagine the mother, but will ignore her and focus on this lovely innocence. Hope she keeps the joyful freedom forever :))) Lovely beautiful poem, perfect for the prompt.

    Radhika, a very charming poem to go with the great photo. Maybe I should see if I still remember how to make a mud pie topped with dandelion meringueโ€ฆor maybe Iโ€™ll stick to making keto fudge with pecans. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love this post!
