The Call of the Wild

by November 9, 2009 0 comments

I hear the call of the wild
In the morning,
right after I get
the kids off to
school and feed the dogs,
but before I surf the net.

I hear the call of the wild
after I load the dishwasher
but before I call my mom
to tell her about the dream
I had, the one about Jude Law

I hear the call of the wild
right after the kids
get home from school,
and sometimes after Oprah

I hear the call of the wild
between the time that
Bill O’Reilly starts
and the kids are getting
ready for bed

I hear the call of the wild
sometime After the
kids fall asleep
but before David Letterman
signs off

I heed the call of the wild,
I practice nashing my teeth
I growl at My Shih-tzu
but he doesn’t growl back
