Early morning in the park,
I thought I heard a subtle bark.
Oh no, it’s all close and loud
Now I can see what’s happening,
There’s a dog in the park.
Dog’s not alone
The owner is nearby
Fetching the plastic bag.
Her hands are ready,
Her next step is clear.
Fetching what belongs to the trash
So that the park and grass stay clean.
