The Little Bullies - Oh no!

It was after puppy training
At K-9 Town, USA
Still talking about their very first battle
When they should have been at play.

We did what we were taught to do
We fought them until the end
Tonight we’re gonna go find them
And beat them up again.

We’ll sneak out very quietly
Won’t let the Elders know
Gonna beat the baby woods monsters again
They might not let us go.

Don’t care if they don’t want to fight
We’ll fight them anyway
We know just where to find them
We can go back every day.

All of a sudden there was a sound
Oh no! She heard it all
It was schoolmarm poodle Sophie Jean
Looking over 8 feet tall.

What’s this about you sneaking away
I’ll get to that in a few
First tell me where you were going
And what you thought you were gonna do.

The puppies looked at their teacher
This was badder than they thought
The whole pack was standing behind her
How do we always get caught!

Leader Omar Blue was with them
He too was looking stern
He’d let the schoolmarm handle it
The lesson they had to learn.

We teach you for a reason, she said
Survival our only plan
But you were planning to go hurt others
Just because you think you can.

That’s not the way we do things
You know I tell you true
So change your way of thinking now
Or we’ll be all over you.

Not saying don’t protect each other
Do all you have to do
But when the battle is all over
It better not have started with you.

All the puppies were looking at Sophie
Knowing what she said was true
She was speaking for the female Elders
Don’t want “them” after you.

They thought about everything she said
Knowing that she was right
It was gonna be a long, long time
Before they had another fight.

The above is my "true tale." Now I'll let fellow author Sandra McLeod Humphrey tell her thought provoking story @
