Canines - Poem by Don Eckles

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!
