About Dogs

And here's to dogs:

Dogs, Dogs

Dogs are obsequious creatures.
They live life on bended knee
and servilely serve their betters
and secretly water each tree.

But they love us in spite of their flaws,
and those faults are not really so bad.
And they'll openly flout the small laws
and provide us the best times we've had.

Small laws like "Keep Off the Grass!"

Nice! Maybe the next poetry book will be animal-themed and aimed at kids...?

I'm thinking of devoting one poem to each species in the animal kingdom.
