The Flea Ridden Dog

The Flea Ridden Dog

A Poem by Belle Starr
"

Fleas - Adam had 'em. ~ Shortest poem on earth.

"
My dog has fleas.
What a terrible mess!
And where he got them,
Only HE can guess!

My dog has fleas!
He walked through the door.
And he deposited said fleas
Upon my floor!

My house has fleas!
They hopped onto my cozy bed!
Then, while I slept soundly there,
They riddled the hair on my head!

NOW, I have fleas! (scratch)
And spent my last dollar,
To buy myself... (scratch, scratch)
A new flea collar!

A great piece of humor and a lovely vignette of life with pets.
And as always, very well written.

This actually relates to where someone has a dog or two that magnifies the fleas to them, making it very messy. I have two dogs that get fleas a lot, and so it gets around the house a lot. The creativity for this is out-stunning.

i like the poem for creativity used. I can visualize the never ending scratches to ease the itchiness among dogs and even people sometimes.

This is such a cute piece. Very child friendly, I think they would find tons of humour in it (as well as learn a lesson or two about fleas lol)

No problem, have a nice day :)
I read the first line and I couldn't help but be reminded of that episode of Boy Meets World where Cory reminisces about his childhood playing the ukulele - "my dog has fleas!" By the looks of it, you're implying this is all true, but truth or fiction, this is wonderful. I enjoyed the flow, the rhyming, and even the "scratching". Well done!
