A Fable


There once was a dog
Who was friends with a hog.
They sat around on a log
Drinking beer and grog,
With never a care
Of how they might fare.
I happened along
Took them both home,
To people this poem,
Said it wouldn’t take long.
Dined them on caviar and champagne,
Then brought them back again.
Now the hog plays the flute;
The dog talks of Beirut-
And they curtsy and bow
Dog never says, bow-wow-
Now that my assets are sunk in them,
I think I’d prefer them both drunk again.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
