Marcel the Marvellous, a tiny orphan lamb
adopted by a galumphing dog,
burst into another life
With nary a sound, the dog instilled
the will to survive, to act the clown
to tumble around in Persil-white fleece
each to each working to please.
Wound around each claw and paw,
dog saved lamb and lamb charmed dog,
Fill your glass and drink a toast
to a seal this unlikely friendship.
Boo and Marcel
