Then the Dog Ran Off (Sonnetina Quatro)
I taught my dog to drive my truck
so I could ride and play guitar.
When I get drunk I’m still in luck,
He drives home from the country bar.
A trooper stopped us. That did suck;
We were not going very far.
The truck’s impounded. I’m in jail,
A license I forgot to get.
Yes, it’s a sad and sorry tale.
My license won’t work for my pet.
