I hear that humans think us dogs
Poop and pee to the south or north.
The humans have deep dialogues,
All sorts of theories pondered forth.
Magnetic poles - one theory is,
That draw us dogs to face that way,
The better to do our biz.
Just why - humans have yet to say.
My human with his wife did talk
'Bout testing this theory on me.
Next time I took him for a walk.
I did mess with his mind with glee.
He watched me fail the human test.
I did pee east and did poop west.
