There's A Little In All Of Us - Poem by Mac Wilkey

There’s A Little In All of Us

There’s a little bitty dog in all of us like the one that wags his tail
We sit up straight when we sense a treat or the mailman brings the mail
Our ears perk up when our name is called; it happens without fail
‘Cause there’s a little young dog in all of us like the one that wags his tail

There’s a little bitty cat in all of us like the ones that stretch and purr
When you rub their back in a loving way and don’t upset the fur.
We love a pat and a “job well done” and the use of “Ma’am” and “Sir”
‘Cause there’s a little old cat in all of us like the ones that stretch and purr.

There’s a little bitty horse in all of us like the ones that love to run
We are glad to head for the barn at night when we know the day is done.
If we could we’d let the car top down and feel the wind and sun
‘Cause there’s a little wild horse in all of us like the ones that love to run.

There’s a little bitty pig in all of us like the ones that love the mire
We could sit around with the mess piled up and never ever tire
Our nose would root right below the fence if it wasn’t sharp barbed wire
“Cause there’s a little fat pig in all of us like the ones that love the mire.

There’s a littly billy goat in all of us that makes us butt our head
Into where we know we should never go but until the day we’re dead
We’ll just run amuck like a pickup truck whose tires have lost their tread
‘Cause there’s a little old goat in all of us that makes us butt our head.
