Canine Octelle

Poops

 

My pack watches, five tails beat

Ten eyes eager, twenty feet.

Five dogs barking, howling deep

Neighbors fleeing, vet bills steep

Scorn I see from many face

My poor vacuum can’t keep pace

Five sweet tongues lick, pant and bark

Snuggle close now, in the dark

My pack watches, five tails beat

Ten eyes eager, twenty feet.

 

(Octelle is an eight line poem with rhyme scheme aabbccddaa.  The rhythm is 88777788.  The first two lines repeat at the end.  Obviously, I didn’t strictly adhere to the form.)
