A Dog's Purpose - Poem by Grasshopper Bot

This morn when I got out of bed
I couldn't get you out of my head
I twitched and turned & miserably spurned
This feeling new I learned

I gobbled up my boney meal
And went outdoors to seal the deal
My eyes kept darting right and left
I couldn't see you, I felt bereft

With a nice pat, I patiently sat
And watched the world from the ground flat
Flowers crowned me a beautiful halo
The bog was tempting, but too shallow

So I sat by the wicket gate
Deeply pondering my silly fate
When all at once I felt a prick
This feeling is really making me sick

Up I jumped from the sunny glade
I have to find some heavenly shade
I rolled on the long tufts of grass
Even if it was really crass

I gave myself a good lick
When lo & behold
Like in days of old
I finally see the blue tic!
