“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,

Nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;

It is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one,

When he discovers that someone else believes in him,

And is willing to trust him with his friendship.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson



True friends truly come in all shapes and sizes

It’s so marvelous, whenever they can be found

These two, Jack and Junior, are always together

One is tiny, one big, but now, best friend clowns


Little Jack had been abandoned in a nearby park

Junior was left behind in Katrina, in New Orleans

These days, these once lonely canines, have bonded

And they now both delight, in their mischievous schemes


Junior is The Master of Deception, for their antics

While Little Jack is most skilled, in daring robberies

While Junior distracts my spouse, when preparing meals

Little Jack will grab a piece of food, and race off with glee


Soon, I’ll hear my spouse now yelling at the top of her lungs

While Junior and Jack meet in the basement, to share their loot

While my wife cusses, I now find myself, howling with laughter

Because what will always follow next, to me, is always a real hoot


Very quickly, after they devour their latest big score in the basement

They will both race back upstairs and feign remorse at my wife’s feet

They’ve both figured out how to get to her, with their puppy dog eyes

Before long, she forgives them, and they now each get a hug and a treat


And quite often, late at night, while my spouse and I are both fast asleep

These Two of a Kind will very skillfully raid a food cupboard or a drawer

We’ll awake to find a trail of crumbs or wrappings leading to the basement

And several of her favorite cookies, or a piece of pie, will now exist, no more


“Jack and Junior! You two are really in Big Trouble now!”

And so am I, because I can’t help it – I always laugh and howl



“There are big ships and small ships,

But the best ship of all, is friendship.”

I'd not FULLY realized the value of frienship
Until it had fallen into the sea
And left only grief inside of me.
