Clever Boy

Convinced there is a deeper Rex

Behind those big mournful eyes

“I can see his very soul”


Sadly Rex is not so clever

Cannot form his own opinions

Or take part in the debate:


“Cats: Good or Bad?”


He might even look cute

In a pin-stripe suit

Adorable in those large rosettes


Rex though prefers raw meat

Tender, juicy – that just dead taste

Chewing through marrow


So next time you take a tumble

Breaking your hip

Don’t reach for the phone


Give the dog a bone
