Melt My Heart?
So keen to do my bidding
All I need to do is whisper
And they shall spring into action
One single, or the whole pack
On point to do whatever I wish
No leashes or string to hold taut
Always willing to heel -
I’ve no need to use a poison without smell
Or make an apple for a princess to taste
I need no trick to chase my quarry
I’ve the perfect pet
In livery with brass buttons that shine
Their added wings accent their supple shape
Delightful and with glee my pretty pawns
They are with tail and paw -
Monkey see; I point; Monkey do!

pet, string, paw, smell, wish, point, pack, trick, shine, shape, taste, whisper
Process notes: I wanted to create something outside ‘the box’, nontraditional,
but always...fun. and I am a great fan of Mr. Baum and his many Oz stories.
