DOGGONE, it's Mag Week #188





Tess gave her friend/bloggers 

this picture/prompt, to write 

something, then post on "our" 

MAGPIE, week #188...JOIN us?





A SHORT STORY

a Native American (mis-named "Indian")
large as a hairless simian
walking with his dog one day

as time would have it so
this was many moons ago
difficult to keep dog at bay

happily yelping, cavorting,
running, generally sporting--
dog ran right off the cliff

owner, tear-eyed and wan
cried softly, "DOGGONE."
and that's how the
word came to be
you see?
