What is that stuff all over your back, dog?
In the slime is a white ball.
Gross botfly larva OUT.

Another kimo poem. 3 lines with 10-7-6 syllables. A kimo poem is supposed to be an image. I hope it isn’t too disgusting an image for you!
Our senior dog had a lump in her back that appeared and grew over the last week. She scratched it open today, and in cleaning and examining it, I discovered a parasite. 😦 I was going to attach a photo, but really. You don’t want to see the hole in the poor little dog or the 8mm critter that was in the hole!

Curled up comma, figure in curly fur,
beside me, softly snoring,
my happy puppy dreams.
