lazy hound

07/21/2009

One time grandpa used
his hound to come find me
when I was lost and needed help
now that I’ve grown
my dog is of no use
I’ve lost my job
and he won’t play find it

He’ll play fetch when
I throw him a stick
but the wood is worth little
and so I throw it again
if he loses that one
it brings another back
why can’t he fetch me work?

If a man’s got to do something
he’d better do it himself
so I lace up my boots
call in the team
roll up my sleeves
and get ready to get dirty
as I climb down the well
of inspiration by myself

  1. nice idea. i was almost hoping, by the end, you will put on your boots and go fetch a stick… but… 🙂

    I guess if you throw the stick down the well of inspiration then something’s got to give.
