some puppies, when they wake,
like to wag their tails and bound.
but other puppies like to snooze
and won't wake for any sound.
they'll sleep through earthquakes,
through wars and through rain.
and if they're shaken, open
one eye in disdain.
they'll shift a bit and grunt a tad
and make various puppy noises
they'll stretch their paws and rub their nose
and, while the waggy puppy rises,
find another comfy pillow
like a cushion or grass or your arm
and go back to happy sleepy land
where it's nice and safe and warm.
