"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

the end.


Then 10 am rolls around again.
