Maya’s Martini


Maya Johnson and Martini

Martini the little shiatsu was cute as can be

Wagging his tail so carefree.

by the ocean with good friend Suzy.

Now he was very aware

for when he got scared

he hid under Maya’s desk

and there he would rest

his head on Maya’s small feet

then he’ld look up for a treat.

“Now why did you name him Martini? ”

I asked Maya quizzically one day.

Then Maya turned her head to say

“Well, this is the story Sue Chevalier–

“Martini was named after the club

where people like to dance–

I met my husband Ron

there by circumstance.”

All three used to live together by the sea

Martini passed on but Maya has fond memories

of her sweet Shiatsu dog named Martini.
