Doug Takes a Trip

Scared Doug

Doug Takes a Trip

.

.

Doug frowned looking out the back door,

Dismayed at the high growing weeds.

Grandma asked, “What you so sad for?”

He said, “The Dove ate all the seed”.

.

“Go ahead, put some more out there.”

She told Doug with a loving smile.

He twisted the doorknob about,

Went over to the old wood pile.

.

A tray was hanging on a tree

Just high enough for him to reach.

He spilled some seeds haphazardly

When he heard a high scary screech.

.

Was getting dark, Sky turning black.

Saturn, stars, moon already out.

Doug tripped and screamed while running back.

All the neighbors had heard him shout.

.

Staring out the bedroom windows,

They wondered, “What the heck was that?”

Then, crawling out of dark shadows

Came Mel, the mangy alley cat.
