Stanley! The Musical

Stanley! The Musical
mostly acoustical
upbeat, therapeutical
sponsored by a pet pharmaceutical

I wasn’t sure about the exclamation mark
I actually wanted a bark
something to grab your attention
and give you the impression
you were in for a treat
all from a dot and a line, which is neat

But I hesitated
it felt premeditated
the title jarred
I think I’m guilty of trying too hard

it’s like when someone says ‘aww – isn’t my dog the CUTEST?’
and you can’t help instinctively disputing this
because it’s a bold assertion
and you hate coercion
no iffs, no butts
especially when it comes to mutts
