A Dog Of Few Words
A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
The clerk handed the dog a note.
'You'll have to write it out somehow.'
The dog took pen in teeth and wrote,
'Bow wow wow, bow wow wow, bow wow.'
The clerk read what the dog had penned.
'One to ten words have the same fees.'
'There's eight words now, so you can send'
'Another 'bow wow' if you please.'
'No, ' the dog said, 'Just between us, '
'One more would sound ridiculous.'
I, the Washington Monument,
Was built in Washington, D.C.
George made a name, that's evident,
So thanks to him, I came to be.
An obelisk made all of stone,
Took over 50 years to do.
Loads of human squabbling got thrown
Into the mix, but I got through.
Over 500 feet I rise.
