Went to the Dogs #FoundPoem

Time for another entry from our local weekly newspaper’s call-in column, where people (mostly anonymous) can call in and vent. If this ain’t vernacular poetry, I don’t know what is.

Went to the Dogs

by Anonymous Caller

The Palmyra Town Hall
has seemed
to went to the dogs.
The three times I’ve been in there,
I have seen a dog
running around
in the town hall.
This does not look very professional
for town government
and water utilities.


Maybe not for town government, but water utilities….

I posted last week at Fatal Foodies about Charlie getting stewed. Apples. This week, I’m posting about our New Year’s Day meal.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Someone spots a dog in an unexpected place.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Wait, don’t the water utilities maintain the hydrants? Maybe the dog was there on business…
