Cardboard dog

I have a cardboard dog I built from boxes
I made him from an empty packing crate
leftover cartons, an eggbox and glue
He’s not a Crufts contender but he’ll do

Some days I take him to the seaside, low tide
He spins around & sprays me as he dries off
Salty cardboard flies apart
I mend him with some Sellotape…

At night as he curls up under the table
wrapped in an elaborate belief
That he grew up slowly from a matchbox
and with that thought he lulls himself to sleep

From closely watching other dogs in action
he’s learnt to bark and sit and guard my car
People pass and say “oh look a cardboard dog
They just don’t make them like that anymore”

At night as he curls up under the table
wrapped in an elaborate belief
That he grew up slowly from a matchbox
and with that thought he lulls himself…

and one day I know that I will tell him
that I also made the table & the sea
But his story is holding increasing water
but lets just keep that between you and me
