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

  1. Good poem,
    it deserves a bone
    Around a porter house
    Well done.
