Canines


Dogs are a pain
Dogs are a drain
Dogs stink when wet
Dogs give you affection
Dogs give you direction
Dogs make a fine pet
Dogs embarrass you
Dogs harass you
Dogs are so base
Dogs will lie for you
Dogs will die for you
Dogs know their own place
Dogs are a contradiction are they not?
Dogs seem right out of fiction
Tis their lot!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
