A Dog Of Few Words
A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
The clerk handed the dog a note.
'You'll have to write it out somehow.'
The dog took pen in teeth and wrote,
'Bow wow wow, bow wow wow, bow wow.'
The clerk read what the dog had penned.
'One to ten words have the same fees.'
'There's eight words now, so you can send'
'Another 'bow wow' if you please.'
'No, ' the dog said, 'Just between us, '
'One more would sound ridiculous.'
A Roman emperor proclaimed
Where was Jesus' burial site.
The emperor's mother had named
The location, so 'twas deemed right.
Upon the site, a church was built -
Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Christians went for the spot full tilt.
'Twas a leap of faith to be sure.
Inquiring minds still want to know.
