Run Snoopy run, get up off the floor
The Blue Lady’s coming through the door
She’s in that mood … could last all day
Get up and be gone outside to play.
I wish a button could make her stop
Giving hateful looks and non-smiles
Creeps me out … her present style
Hopefully … it lasts just a little while.
Maybe … later … her mood will change
A telephone call to a sibling or two
Usually she will … laugh … smile
Might … last … the whole day through.
So little friend, …I know you mean well
Playfulness today won’t help … I can tell
Been through this … a few times before
Get gone, hurry, out the door.
