Dad and I play football, but I win cause he can't run in the ice...

I Love Playing Football…

          -by Rufuz-


Footballs for me are a real treat,

Dad throws it into the street,

I chase it and try to keep it out of the creek,

Dad says the creek is dirty,

If I go in, I will glow in the dark,

My eyes, they glow now, when dad shoots me with that light thing,

When we go at night to play in the park.


I found this football on the ground,

I like how it bounces cause it is sort of off round,

I also play with a soda bottle, but the football is my real fun,

Playing with it at night and all day in the sun.


Dad says I don’t socialize with other doggies well,

My toys I keep to myself and get angry & tell,

When my toys they try to take,

But I love playing with Daddy,

Cause he chases me & tries to fake,

That he is hiding behind a tree,

Dad do you think I am stupid, I can see you there,

But he thinks its fun, growling at me like an old bear,

So I go along and play, cause I hear,

That daddy is not around, forever,

I don’t like to hear that, and I wonder where,

He will go, and hope I can go with him wherever there is…

Ed, great material for a short story or movie - starring Rufuz, the Incredible Canine with strange, uncanny, eerie, powers. Can read minds, and make his master do whatever he commands!!
