- They Said He Was Really, Really Dumb: : Humour - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

He was a little fluffy white dog, well more accurately grey
He'd jump and he'd run, he knew how to play
Sometimes he barked persistently in the middle of the night
Like I said, his owners didn't think he was too bright

Monty would sit looking up, while a raging torrent of words
Flowed past him, for all we knew, he thought them completely absurd
But amidst all the cacophony, a single utterance caught his attention
He suddenly looked bright and alert, full of comprehension

The word 'walk' was dropped ever so briefly and offhandedly
But Monty responded immediately and completely understandingly
'Walk' meant loads of fun, meant sniffing around
Seeing nature in its glory, scampering over new ground
Meeting old pals and stretching his limbs
Twisting and turning at any old whim

Words like tobacco, alcohol and ecstasy had no meaning to him
These words were easily lost in the general din
They didn't signify excitement or having bucket loads of fun
Sometimes I wish people had his kind of dumb!

(Sydney, Australia - 2008)
