The dog is man’s best friend.
He has a tail on one end.
Up in front he has teeth.
And four legs underneath.
Dogs like to bark.
They like it best after dark.
They not only frighten prowlers away
But also hold the sandman at the bay.
A dog that is indoors.
To be ket out implores.
You let him out and waht then?
He wants back in again.
Dogs display reluctance and wrath
If you try to give them a bath.
The bury bones in hideaways
And half of the time they trot sideways.
They cheer up people who are frowning,
And rescue people who are drowning.
They also track mud on beds,
And chew people’s clothes to shreds.
Dogs in the country have fun.
They run and run and run.
But in the city this species
Is dragged around on lashes.
Dogs are upright as a steeple
And much more royal than people.
