There are evil things afoot tonight
There's a mystery in the air
I can sense the trouble brewing
and I know exactly where

Yes, my bassets are scheming
Imagine! behind my very back
of how to grab those sizzling
steaks right off the oven rack

they think I know nothing of
their other diabolical plot..
to steal my fresh baked cookies
and not just one, but the whole lot!

I've seen them with their heads together
slyly watching my every move,
but those shifty eyes don't fool me
these two hounds are not that smooth!

The drool's always a dead give away
that there's something up
so I chase out them into the yard
and then the door I quickly shut!

You need to collect your basset poems and take accompaning pictures for a basset anthology! I know I would buy it! yvonne

Yes! Sabian's mom is right-think about contacting a publisher who has a 'niche market' in animal books- your basset poems are good enough to be picked up by the right editor. Don't be intimidated by the process, it's not hard- in fact, I think you'd have fun! My husband is a writer- believe me, your poems are good enough to do this.(You might consider an illustator- that might broaden your appeal to the children's market)
