(That Elusive Photograph is SideView’s theme this weekend.)
Six pooches is our current flock,
Though seven, once, we had in stock,
And often, through the years,
I’ve tried to snap them as a group,
So you could see the total troop –
It always led to tears!
Each time I set them in a pose,
Then off one or another goes,
It really is a pest!
I’ve often tried to bribe with food,
But some still get into a mood
And slink off, all depressed.
And even if their ears should reach
My: ‘We are going to the beach!’
When, normally, they throng,
As soon as camera they see
They simply take one look, and flee!
So I still get it wrong.
Just given it another try
(I still persist, though Lord knows why;
They’ve driven me to drink!)
But as you see, from this here mess,
I still have met with no success …
I’m giving up, I think.
