my dog don’t fetch

I throw the ball 

you run away

Been trying to play this game 

all day damn day. 

You smirk at me

when I chase it for you.

Should I throw the ball

and catch it too? 

For such a little dog

You hold a lot of weight

Our personalities collide

when we play this game.

I’m the one begging you 

to pick this stick up.

But we both know 

when push comes to shove. 

I’m the one that’s going to be

picking it up.
