Patriotic Pup

Inspired by Catherine Johnson’s Metaphor Monday prompt and photos today HERE, I whipped up a Memorial Day poem and sketch (or, a ditty ‘n a doodle!).

PatrioticPupHot pavement and excitement took it’s toll on the brigade

As they trotted down the sidewalk in the Veteran’s Parade.

All spangled up in stars and stripes, a patriotic pup

Dropped to cool off in the shade and drink from Sarge’s cup.


– Thanks, Catherine!


Take a moment to remember while you enjoy family and friends today.
