  • Content to stand alone
    Waiting, watching, guarding Granny's home
    His face reflecting simple joy
    But he is not a happy Plaster boy
    "Careful sonny, not too close
    Unless you want a lethal dose
    of hardening..."
    Patiently waiting for some shade
    Wishing he could run away
    Supressing any urge to roam
    Such devotion from a little gnome
    “I once saw a calico that thought he could fly
    And then the lanky Doberman that tinkled in my eye
    A pacifict by nature, with amble common sense
    But if I had my druthers, I'd rather be a fence
    Now Granny, she's a good one, she shines me now and then
    And come around this springtime, I'm due for paint again
    On keeping Granny comfy, I try and earn my keep
    I'm just wishing I had some eyelids, so I could get some sleep.”
