My doggy tilts her hollow head
Each time she hears me talk.
She’s done it every time I’ve said,
“Hey girl, you wanna walk?”
I know she hears, but it appears
She’s vexed by what I say.
“You wanna walk?” She flaps her ears
and tilts the other way…
“You wanna walk?” She tilts her head,
And so I ask again,
“You wanna walk?” Alas, instead,
her brains roll ’round within.
I tilt my own as I presume
she can’t make sense of me.
That’s why she finds our dining room
The perfect place to pee.
