Superman Redux

I think that Jenny must have had a really bad week, and unfortunately Saturday Centusians were the only easy targets for frustration ventilation. I looked at our assignment using this somewhat obtuse photographic prompt and thought to myself, "What have I done to Jenny to cause this...this...I can't think of the words to describe my feelings, or perhaps I can't write them in a nice way..." Nonetheless, I can find a way to make lemonade from lemons. I am 'Super Writer' !! My offering below will most likely never claim space on a Hallmark Card...or any card for that matter. Suffice it to say, it will for now, and forever be my Love Song to Miss Jenny and All Saturday Centusians...Peace and blessings for all the love you can give and all that you get...may this Valentine's Day be your best yet!!

"I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I'll never see...
I'm more than a bird...I'm more than a plane..."

Those words, that song
Remind me of that day
My whole life long.
When you sniffed my bottom,
You made a pass...
Dreams of life together,
We knew it could not last...

(ps...thanks to John Ondrasik for allowing me use of lyrics from the wonderful, Five For Fighting song, Superman)


  1. Ha! We both included the sniffing of derrières! This is actually, dare I say, quite lovely.

  2. He looks like he could feel and say those things! LOL!~Ames

  3. Good job! Butt sniffing seems to be a theme this week.

  4. You're good, Jeff! You're VERY good!!

  5. The look on the dog's face really goes well with your unusually beautiful piece....bottom sniffing and all!

  6. It's like you've read his mind! Poor Bugger!

  7. oh, loved this Jeff, very funny!

  8. Very good Jeff! The expression on the dog's face just cracks me up every time I look at it. You've captured his angst very well :) Kat

  9. You really did put hallmark to shame. This is as sweet and romantic as any message with this picture prompt could get.
    Very nicely done, Jeff.

  10. LOL, Too cute and funny. Great job on your card writing.

  11. This is one of my favorite songs but I never, ever thought about a Pug in a Superman suit when I heard it!

  12. Oh I truly love this ....even as a great Valentine!

  13. Very cute...I can imagine him singing..

  14. Jeff! I love this. When I started reading it I hit that song on my playlist and laughed all the way through it!

    You're a genius.

    Really, really funny!
