A short rhymed poem

I'm Not Diggin' Your Digging!

by Debra White

I'm finding my attention drawn

right to the middle of the lawn -

A mucky crater in the ground

and next to it, a guilty hound.

Our spaniel, Molly, loves to dig.

She's dug a hole (it's kinda big.)

This hole could cause a trip or fall...

"Not good, my girl. Not good at all,

and what an eyesore. Look at it!

I'm not impressed, Moll, not one bit.

This excavation's quite a crime.

Those puppy eyes won't work this time."




I really wish she wouldn't dig...

The dog in the photo looks so much like Molly, but isn't! Photo courtesy of
