'Merciful Pup'

You might remember my limerick about a merry chap Kyle and his not-so-happy dog that one day teaches him a lesson:

~Every Dog Has His Day~
There once lived a merry chap Kyle,
Had a doggy that never did smile.

There and back in the blink
Of an eye, “Where’s my drink?”

Kyle is sad, but his dog’s got a smile.

I remembered Kyle and his pup, too, and decided to pick up where we left off:

"Well, I think you're wonderful."

~Merciful Pup~

He, who once was a merry chap Kyle,
Has been sad for a very long while,

So, his pup shows him mercy:
Pours him gin, puts on Purcell,

Wails for him, “Shall your cares beguile!”

We'll see if we have an update on Kyle and his pup next Thursday :-)

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
