"It Was Ten in the Morning When The Dog Showed Up at His Door" by Chet Woodruff
It was 10 in the morning when the dog showed
up at his door.
He told himself he wasn’t going to
continue where he left off the night before.
When he awoke he said never again
but his hands were shaking by 10 am.
Just a little bit to calm his nerves
a little turns into a lot
what he told himself before was soon forgot.
Can’t stop now almost there
will do whatever it takes to get to
Then 10 am rolls around again.
