Limerick-The Dog - Poem by Loke Kok yee

There was a dog and he was a snobby
Chasing after the buses was his hobby
The bus came to a stop
But not this stupid dog
The impact quite shortened his body

    before i got to the poem, i looked at the photo and Oh, my god came forth from my mouth.

    try canine fop at end of 4th line:

    noun: fop; plural noun: fops

    a man who is concerned with his clothes and appearance in an affected and excessive way; a dandy.
    synonyms: dandy, man about town, poseur; informalsnappy dresser, trendoid, hipster;
    archaiccoxcomb, popinjay
    he was known as quite a fop in the old neighborhood, always dressed to the nines

    - - - - - - - - - - maybe shortened in lieu of shorten?

    i may have a nightmare regarding the photo. yikes! ! ! is it 'normal'?

    Some how the dog looks mangy! Instead of granting him euthenasia, it is nice that he came to such an abrupt end!
