Nutritious Soil

Dig, dig, and dig.
Digging a hole.
Dig, dig, and dig.
Digging a deep pit.
Dig, dig, and dig.
Digging a deep hole.
Deep enough to
Contain
Its poo.

Pat! Pat!
Flattening the soil.

Wagging its tail
Then left the soil.
And approaches
The triangle house
And play
With us.

This is the fourth series about my stray pet ‘Melvin’ who is mentioned in my previous poetry. One day, I happened to spot it digging the soil and poo outside my uncle’s house.

Bam to Poo

BAM! BAM! BAM!
Bam the door!
Bam with his buttock.
BAM! BAM! BAM!
Shouting to his grandma
He wants to poo.
BAM! BAM! BAM!
Grandma panics
Swiftly shower
BAM! BAM! BAM!
She opens
The bathroom door
And left swiftly.

On the toilet bowl,
He laughingly,
“No pooing.”
