Poem: Little Puppy

A poem about a lost puppy who is a nuisance but becomes part of the family in the end with the charm and struggles that come with it.

Little Puppy

What a funny little thing

more nice than nuisance

unexpected and unjustified

invader of my heart


A sob story on a step

lost puppy a literal cliché

how could you have known

that you found your owner?


With each habit I crumble

not all fun and games

at time your more nuisance

than pet of my dreams


Yet part of any family

are triumphs and tribulations

you have become family

unexpected little puppy

-Poem by Justin Germino
