I'll post a poem here.

This is actually two poems in one: The first and last poem I've ever written. I needed to write it for a book I was working on, just so you'll know why it's my first one. Once you've read it, you'll know why it's the last. :-)

Here it is. It's called,


DOGS©

Dogs, dogs, dogs -
Everywhere I look, I see
Dogs, dogs, dogs.

Dogs with balls,
Dogs with bones,
Dogs with stolen ice cream cones:

Chasing cars,
Howling at Mars,
Dogs, dogs, dogs.

Big dogs, little dogs, medium sized, too,
Run and bump, bump and run,
Leave me black and blue!

Dogs, dogs, dogs.
Everywhere I look I see
Dogs, dogs, dogs.

Runnin' dogs,
Fightin' dogs,
Huntin' dogs, too;
Racin' dogs,
Pullin' dogs,
Dogs to get what flew.

Working dogs,
Herding dogs,
Guard dogs, too;

Prissy dogs,
Bald dogs and
Dogs to track a clue.

Hound dogs,
Police dogs,
Terrier dogs too;
Spaniel dogs, poodle dogs,
Just to name a few.

There are dogs with ears
That have no peers
And some whose drag and droop;
But one and all they stretch and yawn,
And squat to take a poop!

Only God could make a creature so great,
The dog so wise and true;
For the love that lies within those eyes,
There's nothing I wouldn't do.

Dogs, dogs, dogs,
Everywhere I look I see
Dogs, dogs, dogs ...

Compliant dogs,
Defiant dogs and
Dogs who like to chew,
Submissive dogs,
Permissive dogs,
Just to name a few...

Agile dogs,
Fragile dogs and
Crippled dogs too,
Stubby dogs,
Grubby dogs, all, dogs I wish I knew!

Dogs, dogs, dogs,
Everywhere I look, I see
Dogs, dogs, dogs...

Dogs may whine,
They may bark and grovel too,
But no matter what each dog may do,
They push and shove to win our love,
And prove they're a gift from up above.

Cause God did make this creature so great,
The dog both wise and true;
So, for the love that lies within those eyes,
There's nothing I wouldn't do!
