Pittie Man — A Song about a Dog


This song was written about our pitbull named Petey– he’s kinda of nut job, but a lovable nut job and we suspect he has dealings in high finance somehow….*don’t ask, inside joke*

Either way, my wife suggest I take a line I would sing to him now and again to the “Nowhere Man”.  So I went for it.  As you can tell I am not much of singer…or at least not a very practiced singer as this first thing I have ever sang…sung….singed (whatever).

So here ya go, enjoy :

Pittie Man!


He moves really slow

Cuz he has no cares

Wearin an oversized shirt

Cuz he’s got no hairs


He’s the pittie man

Doin things pitties can

Has a pittie plan

Written in color crayon

Don’t know how he wrote

Cuz he’s got no thumbs

And when he eats his chow

He leaves lots of crumbs


Ask him anything

Like what do you think

And you’ll hear him sing

Bout blub financial things

Yutzes — A Poem about Crazy Pets and Thier Antics

The bright bell ring blings twice
starting a pink skinned pitbull tizzy
‘a roo…a roo..” he whirls a dervish
from his bed, from a sleep deep as dead
cocking and tossing his head around
seeking a source of the surprising sound
that woke him from dreams of chases and
squirrels or whatever the hell he dreams of
‘a roo…a roo…” he wails waking the lab
also dead asleep, creating a chorus cry
and a capella aria, songs of alarm
and excited expectation “a roo…a roo…”,
loosely translated is “Who’s here? Who’s Here?”,
which continues even after we repeatedly
calmly explain it was on the tube of boobing,
you yutz!


As we get near to the end…though I’d add a little leavity to my poems…this poem is something that occurs nightly in our house…

Hope it makes you smile..
