I'm glad you liked it Iara!  Some tounge-in-cheek humor, albeit not the best.  But I had fun.
Maybe the next one will be more serious.  :D

I really want to write something like a section of Reynard the Fox in the traditional verse style and vocabulary and keep to the tradition.   If would be fun.   But I would want to do well so that I could do it justice.

Probably I will just write about something contemporary that I know.

Also on another note, I know my style is not sophisticated, and my intention is for fun only.  I do not mean to detract from the seriousness and quality style of others who post here. 
Oh now the GOP stands up for the kids. The crocodile tears are flowing
fast after Trump signed to stop the seperation of kids from their
parents.  A week earlier they had nothing to say.

President Trump all but swore he couldn't stop the family seperation,
then suddently he was able to do it.  Typical of this president to lies
every time he opens his mouth.

The Trump  administration is requiring military lawyers to act as
prosecutors to help convict immigrants.  None to defend them.
 Judges are  dragging 4 year olds into court. Even to say they are
smart enough to understand their rights  under our law. Such
judges should be impeached. and disbarred permanently.

Even though Trump signed an order to stop the separation of families, he
isn't ordering the reunification of the thousands of kids who have already
been separated from their parents. So they are still being held by the
Trump administration. Kids from babies and older. Leaving them to cry for
their parents who they may never see again. They may end end up in foster
care subject to who knows what kind of treatment. Foster care isn't always
a safe place for children.  Especially kids who may be mentally upset or
disturbed due to Trumps ordered  mistreatment. 

In reality the Trump administration is guilty of child abuse and child theft
if done by any individual or a care center would be prosecuted and tossed in

Trumps excuse? National security. Yes these kids are considered a danger to
our security.  The same clarion call that every generation wants to use against
Oh and to those who think Trump is looking out for Americans. He hires
foreign workers to  work in his hotels and resorts. Over 99% of them.

Weird fastener sizes. 23mm? Really? Really?! You have to search to find a wrench for that, let alone a wrench that will actually reach where you need it too.

I heard about Trumps space force branch of the military. We already
have military satellites in orbit.  What I fear is this might trigger a
race to weaponize near space. Russia and China, and others
could decide to put nukes on orbital platforms which could trigger a
war at the slightest mistake or misunderstanding. Leave it to  Trump
to add to our troubles with his over sized ego. Trump never seems to 
consider the future, just at the moment. 

Trump used the word infestation when talking about immigrants from
Latin America. A word that refers to  cockroaches and other vermin.
Granted there are criminals in Latin America, but very few of them
have kids in tow. Kids require too much attention for most criminals 
to fool with. These people are humans not insects or animals.

As I said yesterday Trump finally felt the pressure to stop this separation of
family's. Now he is saying he couldn't let this happen anymore. Just as if
he just heard about it. So he will want to be the hero. Even though he
started the whole mess in the first place. He changed back to more like it
was under Obama. Time will tell how it comes out.

I have a hunch Trump got chewed out by his wife. No counting  GOP
members scared of loosing power.

The Trump administration is still trying to hide this even
though they were trying to say it was because of the law.

I will try to keep this terse.
This poem has 2 lines of mildly suggestive verse.
It also has one weak swear word .
In other areas, things may have gotten blurred

I admit my style is probably rather unfashionable and simple, but it is what rolls off my flapping tongue.
I am not a professional writer.  I was just having fun.
I think that this unsophisticated poem is classified as doggerel.
You know, almost rhymes with dog-drool. Fitting.

Spoiler: show

Walking in Front of Me

These woods are the place I like to be
With you walking in front of me.
The sunlight burning bright in your fur.
Quietly, you continue to purr...
... As you walk in front of me.

The heat of sunlight soaking deep into your fine coat.
Vaporizing oils that float on the breeze you make.
I am surrounded by the odor of you, floating in your lake.
Hoping it will last, pray nothing will capsize my boat.

Your silky black tail, with its gentle curve so right.
I declare, is one of the prettiest things in sight!
The way it connects with a wonderful bump,
And whats beneath..oops...tripped over a stump!

Your paws land on the forest floor without a sound.
Panting with frustration, I continue to pound.

You are taking me to your private place only you know.
A place where you say the white rapids flow.
Between smoothed boulders worn by time.
A place, you assure, that is sublime.
The hunting is easy, the air clean.
I bet you live there, like a queen.
The trail is long, but the view is pretty.
As I walk behind this fluffy, cute, kitty.

Looking down, your claws retracted.  A relaxed feline.
Looking down, mine are blunt and fixed, typical canine.
How much farther is it there?  I whine.
Are we walking the straightest line?

"What's the hurry, do you have some place to be?
Why not walk this path with me?"
No, no.  No plans have I.
Harder, I guess I must try.

Do you have anything to eat once we get there?
Perhaps a crisp apple, juicy peach, or ripe pear?

Hey you dropped something, what is this?
"Hmm...must be the key to my cabin up ahead.
We can go there.. or keep walking instead..."
Cabin please, I sure need to take a piss

"Cant you use the outdoors?"
No, I'm a dog of the indoors.
What, you think I walk on all fours?

"I do sometimes, its only primal.
For survival, its often vital.
You can run faster,
To escape disaster.
You know like an animal?
Certainly that is something understandable?
Hey speaking of, I could show you how to live like a big cat.
Anyway, were almost there!  Let's cut the chitchat!"

Fitting the key to the lock, it easily turns.
inside I see, a light that burns
Candles all around, already lit
You had this planned, now I get-it!

A dinner table, a comfy bed.
This place is much more than a shed!
What a cozy place... just yourself?
Kind of reminds me of my old place in Guelph.

Well, well what's for dinner?
That long walk has made me thinner!
Meat all around if you please!
Canines are lactose intolerant, seriously, no cheese!

Set before me, plates of plenty!
Meat of all kinds, maybe twenty!
Does anything excite me more than good food?
Except, perhaps, hedgehogs stewed?

A gust of wind blows the windows ajar.
Now where did that come from? Bizarre!
The candles are out!  I can't see!
Oooof!  Dang!  I bumped my knee!

"The food has spilled all over the place!
How ever will I clean this space?"
Let's use our raspy tongues, you know what to do!
Just slurp it up, don't forget to chew!

"Okay, but what about us?  We are covered in vittles."
Well, that's easy!
Same as the floor; just don't hold the giggles!

Political Correctness

Just because something bothers another person and they think it should be removed, does NOT mean that I am offended by it and I think it should be removed.
