Kids will always be
the source of new misery

Guide dog needs training.
He never goes to the lake
Always the butcher's

Water in pool deep,
Blind girl walked straight into pool
(Guide dog left at home)

Later, she told folk
“Longbyt, she lured me forwards
She called, ‘come, Chantal’”.

Not true that I called
But true that she walked straight in
We still laugh and laugh.

She seldom does exercise,

Drowning not waving?
Deb's flounder is not fish dish.
Ringli is your buoy.

Drowning not waving
on-lookers dry on the sand
nod, and then walk on

Dog dives to save Deb;
The crowd cheering the duo.
Dog brings towel, too.
