Dogs love socks: a poem by Jeanie Axton

Dogs love socks

Fake food socks
We love to wear
But our doggy friends
Think it’s not fair

The pizza socks
smell like fluff
The bacon socks
are really rough

The taco socks
dripping fake cheese
The hamburger socks
are another tease

The hot dog socks
look so yummy
The cupcake socks
the icings runny

But worst of all
And looking real
Are the T Bone socks
that cause a drool

The dogs agree
This has to stop
Lets give food socks
A mighty chop

A secondary teacher at a local Lutheran College, Jeanie has been dabbling in the area of children nonsense poems for many years. She expresses the comedy in animal antics and in her poetry.
