The Happy Gene

by mermaids

they infect us
with those
wagging tails,
canines full
of joyful noise,
our furry
fan club
makes us feel
so we spend
quality moments
petting, scratching,
throwing a Frisbee,
a human treat
from stresses
of life


I often think of dogs as having a happy gene, they always seem so happy when they see us.
