Our Contributors

David Roche (Dochie) – Asst Editor

 She pensively waited for her chance to escape, She did not mind it inside, but her life was out in the garden. Her food was there, her toys were outside on the lawn And Her little wooden house that fitted her body so perfectly and shielded her from the rain, These were all her favourite things, and inside she could not get to them. So here she waits, watching through the window the crows that are almost mocking her By landing on her silver bowl of food and peck pecking at her nuts. Hey they were hers! She barks once and they flee but return almost instantly. Her face is now pressed against the pane and her paw scrapes the window. She paces back and forth and whines and whinges but alas, her captives are not present They had been known to release her out the door in the past, But they were not there to hear her plea - typical humans! She lies back down on her red and white, soft cushion and watches Those crows will be in awful big trouble when she escapes Mark those words For now all she can do is pensively wait And never take her eyes off them Tiger Paws Junior, May 2014
