Day six poem, LePoMo 2017

LexPoMo2017A misheard song lyric inspired today’s poem. Bonus points if you can identify the song and/or the correct lyric.

Reblogged from the Lexington Poetry Month blog.

you can’t bribe the dog on your way to the sky

unless you have beef
jerky in your pocket
he’s otherwise incorruptible

perfect to guard
the ultimately unapproachable
destination
