In our apartment
My wife and I usually eat while sitting on our couch
Because we lack the space for
A proper dining room table.
I will be the first to admit
I tend to snack while watching television
And in the process
I end up dropping crumbs between the cushions.
This prove to be a bullseye
For our little Yorkie
To go sniffing around
For these little morsels left behind.
At first I thought
He was looking for attention from me
But what he's really looking for
Is a way to get at the hidden treasures.
I need to be mindful
Of what and how I eat
Otherwise, one of my fur kids
Will score an unexpected treat.
