Snooky and Sneaky

My wife’s family had two little  dogs (chihuahua) named Snooky and Sneaky.

Usually where you found one, you found the other.  They were always in contact and usually jumping and tumbling.  So much that one night this poem just spilled out of my head.

Though crude, it’s a fun little poem and using my poet’s license, I turned Sneaky into a cat.

Snooky and Sneaky

Snooky was the little dog’s name
and Sneaky was the cat.
They’d meet and play, every rainy day
at Snooky’s master’s flat.

All day they’d jump and play and
chase each other ’round the house.
When Snooky got tired, he’d stop and lay
and watch little Sneaky catch a mouse.

One day, though it rained,
Sneaky did not come.
Snooky did not understand
what he could have done.

Snooky got mad and had a fit
and ran into the street to find…..
and that is when he did get hit
by a car passing by.

“Sneaky! Sneaky where are you;
where did you go away?”
“Sneaky! Sneaky! please come back
to play with me someday.”

Then came Sneaky down the street
to play once more again.
And that is when she saw the truck,
take away her friend.

“Snooky why are you
going away from me.?”
“Snooky please come back
don’t you  remember me?”

Snooky never did come back
and Sneaky later died.
And now they play, every rainy day
in that big house in the sky.

Snooky was the little dog’s name
and Sneaky was the cat.
They’d meet and play, every rainy day
at Snooky’s master’s flat.
