When Beagle Puppies Lick You (A Poem For Kids) - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

when beagle puppies lick you
it means they love you

when beagle puppies lick you
it means that even if
mommy yelled at you
and even if
daddy ignored you
when you sang
jimmy cracked corn

beagle puppies still love you

it means that when
mommy drags you to church
dressed up like an
eddie munster doll

and all you can think about is
going back home

~ while you draw
~ beagle puppies on your
~ church program

so beagle puppies can lick
you some more

it means
