Lil Fin, little fin

lil fin,

that’s the name of the pooch
the fleabag
that mutt
man’s best friend

daddy’s lil poocharoo

he ain’t much of a guard dog
he sits and listens
and doesn’t mess the place

ladies see him and they
trust me more
they come past the front door
stay a minute or so longer
than they want to

lil fin

the great dog paddler
the lights of the downtown core
1 storey above a
wash-out bar on young street
