                  While various birds are twittering away
                  In our backyard, one squirrel begins to bray,
                  Perhaps because a cat has come too near
                  And fills the local populace with fear.
                  Some houses down the road, a large dog barks
                  Continuing so long nobody harks.
                  Now early planes descend toward our airport,
                  With passengers booked in to some resort
                  Like Disney World or Sea World or a beach
                  Hotel a rental car will quickly reach.
                  But now our dogs, their tasty breakfast done,
                  Are telling me they’re overdue for fun,
                  For their perambulation of our streets
                  Where they’ll sniff out some savory roadside treats.
