Dog, Man's Best Friend


It'll be like that,
in the end! Leashes are long and leashes are
short, Dogs are used for Man's hunting like
sport! Dogs are patient, and dogs are loyal,
We spoil and pamper them, so they think they
are royal! Go fetch, is what we command,
Heel, sit, roll over and just plain catch! Dog
shows with ribbons, awards do abound,
Sniffing they do, as barking's the sound!
Fleas and Ticks are all their pain, We keep
them around to keep us totally sane! To
catch the man that makes a dog, physically
mistreated, Hopefully, by the police, he
would be caught and defeated! Dogs do
bark, when there is an intruder, Don't yell
at dogs, to them it only seems, so ruder!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
