The Greedy Dog


Once upon a time, a dog
Barked away in his bog
Hunting away for food was he
As he was really hungry

One day, he found a bone
Surely, it stopped his moan
Then, he went to cross
A bridge to go across

Crossing the bridge, he looked down
It was a dog, what he found
He was looking at his own reflection
And wanted another collection

There was a bone in the pond
Of what the dog was fond
Looking down, he was greedy
He barked away, became needy

There was no bone down there
The dog was unable to bear
He had nothing left, but sorrow
Alas! What about morrow?

He had not any solution
Hence, we get the conclusion
The dog could be happy with just one
Ultimately, he had left none

Take only what you need
Instead of having any greed
Be satisfied with your possession
That is my suggestion

So don't be like the dog,
Who barked away in his bog

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
