Dinner?

By: Grace Kornegay

There once was a girl named Grace,

and for her it was a challenge to face,

but she would not feed the dog.

Even though she kept a log,

of when to give her food,

Grace never felt in the mood.

Even though the dog would beg,

like a child hanging on to her mothers leg,

or a boy named Andy asking for candy,

or a girl named Cory wanting a bedtime story,

she would always forget like Nemo's friend Dory.

Even though the dog would whine,

Grace was always a slug to feeding her in time,

but finally when "Ring" the clock struck nine,

she thought "Fine."

Then when the dog was hungry enough to eat a horse,

Grace finally felt remorse,

nagging, dragging, tagging on to her,

she realized the real wrong doing of her rash behavior,

and went to feed her pet in her little kitchenette.
