Welcome Buddy

So I tried to be rational.
I tried to say no.
I was being the logical one for a change.
My son Kai was visiting the SPCA - week after week - to see Buddy...

Eventually he wore me down - with a poem he wrote during one of his visits:

Sun dried every day in the life
You  have an intermediate setting
Written out by the man wearing the tie

You stand to attention
When wallets walk by-
But again people sigh
You aren't what they seem to like

Your eyes are disguised
They bleed my soul dry
My heart feels filthy
Everytime I leave your side

Your three by three life
Is pennies compared to mine
I know that everyday I could
Birth you a new smile

I've been told I can't help you
But I can't stand by
When others deny you their side

They won't understand
How I see you
Through my eyes
But when they meet you
They'll cry
Because they too denied

So the master manipulator child of mine gifted our family with another member. 
I wonder what lessons this angel will bring.  Enthusiasm is the order of the day …
