Ode To Otis
By Andrea Cunningham © 2018
Cranky Frankie is getting a buddy.
Soon, Frankie will have a new pal.
Most of you know this,
The new guy’s named Otis.
And play in the sunshine they shall!
For here, life is sweet,
With the grass on their feet,
A soft bed and warm hearts full of love.
No, it’s not just a dream.
Harley’s Hope House it seems,
Includes kind hands and soft belly rubs!
Cricket, Miss Pickles and Teddy
Are waiting, excited and ready,
For Frankie’s new friend at the door.
They’ll take turns teaching Otis.
And soon he won’t notice,
The sad stuff so much anymore.
And Frankie will smile,
As he’s done all the while,
With his crankiest, snaggle-toothed grin.
Sharing his bright sunny spot,
In the doggy jackpot,
‘Cause right here’s where good dreams begin!
