Sure, he gets his scratched, but me...?



When Rufuz lays on his back or side,

He raises his paws & expects me to scratch,

The area that he seems to feel, are his pits,

Initially I found this disgusting, really IS the pits,

As he does not do it back to me, and I can even sit for it,

But still, I get to do it for him, but no reciprocation from him.

Well, isn’t that just so freakin’ rude?


I mean I gotta scratch him there,

Even around his prick,

But do you think he will take care of mine?

No way, just kinda backs away when asked,

I mean I just lay there in my bed, with my legs spread,

Sort of like I was basking,

But he just looks at me like a stupid dog,

And I know he isn’t that, not at all, he is so fine…


Or maybe he is smarter than I give him credit for?

Knows that if he rubs me just right, I may give up,

A fart of tremendous proportions,

Oh well, I guess it can’t hurt to try to get my pup,

To massage my pits too, but fat chance it will get done…


Not so stupid after all is he…
