Charles In Charge

NaPoWriMo21 – April 9

 Our (optional) prompt for the day is to write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character. 

 Charles In Charge

 Upon waking do several stretching exercises

then roll on the new rug

make my way to the door, in my time

reminding them who is in charge

take a leisurely stroll around the yard

do not come when I am called

they have to learn

jump around to make sure they know

that I am truly starving

after finishing my bowl

attempt sneaking food out of the big bowl

being careful not to lose another section

of my adorable floppy ears

go back outside to continue sniffing

hoping to catch a steamy turd today

a guy has to have goals

sleep away the day

pretend to be deaf to avoid being

forced to go out in the rain

move to the big dog’s spot on the couch

refuse to budge until he calls a human

to aid him in getting his spot back

jump around again at dinnertime

try to find a gap in the new fence

if possible, escape

or go back in and get comfy

hopefully we have tv time

with snuggles and pets

try to kiss one of them on the lips

if time allows drag my butt on the carpet

if not today add to the list tomorrow
