is hump day,
I hear it said -
a high hill
to be got over

before the slide down
to TGIF.
Pausing in the park
this Wednesday morning

to pass the time of day
with my neighbour,
what do I see but
his  dog Buddy

a puny Jack Russell
trying to hump
my manly Labrador!
Buddy, says his master,

you're worse than my wife.
This so takes me by surprise
that I neglect to ask
In what respect?
