Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter

A Poem by barleygirl
"

no such thing as too many dog poems

"


You’re sweet as an apple fritter
I wanna take a bite outa you!
Despite your grouchy growl so bitter
love oozes through and through.

Swirls of sugary cinnamon brown
adorn perky scones on your head!
Furry face that refuses to frown,
my resistance you steadily shred.

You’re delicious as tiramisu
come let me slowly savor
all the succulent layers of you;
our friendship a forever favor.

Rubbing your vanilla underside
I feel a plump ball of dough . . .
it’s fit to be rolled and fried
then drizzled with sticky Bordeaux.

Your sweetness whets my appetite
to refuse might mean certain death!
But for now I decline to take a bite
because of dreadful dog breath.

I've always loved all my dogs, Margie,but you appear to have taken dog fancying to cannibalistic levels.
Well, it was a different POV and as the author Charles Lamb once wrote. " A premonitary moistening overflowed my nether lip.".((( Dribbling Hugs)))

This was an adorable story. I love that you compared the dog to sweet foods that make people feel warm and fuzzy inside. Dogs are a truly man's best friend, and I loved that you emphasized how sweet a dog can be. I really enjoyed reading this!

The global dog population is estimated at 900 million and rising. Their sophisticated forms of social cognition and communication may account for their trainability, playfulness, and ability to fit into human households and social situations, and these attributes have given dogs a relationship with humans that have enabled them to become one of the most successful species on the planet today. And all this you have beautifully transposed into a poetic tribute …. well done!
