If I Had A Dog - Poem by Ray Mather

If I had a dog
I’d call him Butch
I’d hug him hard
And love him much

If I had a dog
I’d teach him tricks
Throw him balls
And chuck him sticks

If I had a dog
He’d roll on command
I’d tickle his tummy
And he’d lick my hand

If I had a dog
We’d splash through brooks
Roam through the park
And chase the ducks

If I had a dog
We’d play all day...
But it’s no use
Mum says, “A dog? No way! ”
