A Pantoum for Caesar

on April 9, 2013

 Our very first new puppy, one we chose

A sweet Rottweiler/shepherd/black lab mix

brown brows and paws, soft black fur, a cold nose

We thought he’d romp, chase balls, run after sticks

 

Our sweet Rottweiler/shepherd/black lab mix,

A working dog, just wants a role to play.

We thought he’d romp, chase balls, run after sticks;

He proudly fetched the paper every day.

Caesar chose to protect us, and our home.

He never showed the least desire to roam.

 

Caesar chose to protect us, and our home.

With hackles raised, fur humped up like a camel, he

would never show the least desire to roam –

just stood firm, on guard for our family.

Barked fierce, deep, and loud. No robber would risk it.

Only we knew he’d stop barking for a biscuit.

 

His bark fierce, deep, and loud – No robber would risk it.

Even now with old legs, stiff and slow,

Only we know he’ll stop barking for a biscuit.

Show him his leash and he’s still ready to go.

 

Even now with old legs, stiff and slow,

He struggles upstairs rather than stay alone.

Show him his leash and he’s still ready to go.

This is the dog that I would like to clone.
