I Saw a Sign; It Made No Sense

A dyslexic couple lost god last night.
I can’t imagine how das they must eb.

There was a photo.
Their god looked like a Chihuahua.
(Which I pronounce “Chi –wa-ha –wa-ha” for no good reason.)

It looked like a Chihuahua I’d seen near a fire main on Hydrant St.

This started me thinking.
and so on,
and so on,
and so on,

What if the Chihuahua really was god?

I ran back to find the Chihuahua.
I asked if it would grant my wishes.

The Chihuahua said, “What am I a freakin’ genie?”

I hope that nice couple finds god.
