The Prediction

Odd words often rolled off his tongue.

Rhymes and half sentences.

Dates and images.

Things that added up later.

Pointless things. 

Like Jack Taylers dog who barked a chirp.

Jack found him at the pound after the prediction.

The old man said Jack would bring home a bird dog.

Everyone thought he’d get a black lab,

But he got a tiny mixed breed that chirped a bark.

The prediction, as always, was spot on.

Our interpretation was not.
